Annie Lee and Me!

A rather muggy feeling Monday.....   but I've gathered a few treasured "saved" pics...

On this Monday afternoon, I'm having tea in remembrance of Annie Lee!

Here's my collage, and I've been pleasantly motivated by 
Judith @ Lavendar Cottage

Visit her soon! 

Annie Lee - Artist, Humorist, Humanitarian

Annie Francis Lee was born in Gadsden, Alabama in 1935 and raised in Chicago, Annie grew up learning how to cook, wash, clean and sew. These survival skills, which she learned along with her brother, instilled in her a work ethic that has served her well. In addition to sewing, Annie learned to knit, crochet and draw. She began to paint when she was ten years old  ....  Lee did not resume painting until she was 40 years old.

Annie worked during the day and painted at night. Painting became her refuge from the work that inspired one of her most famous paintings – “Blue Monday.” The painting depicts a woman struggling to pull herself out of bed on a Monday morning – a feeling Annie could relate to.
