How It Got It's Name

The Merry Fox, that is.  It is named after my grandmother.  Her name was Mary Alice, we called her Mama Alice. She was born before 1900 and lived to be almost 100. She was a very pleasant woman who enjoyed playing the harmonica while the grandkids "square-danced". She came from a family of pastors and preachers. She played the piano and organ for her church. She also endured many hard times. However, she remained faithful and true in spirit. Her favorite saying was "Trust in Jesus and obey and He will lead you all the way."

I'll write more about her in future posts. Meanwhile I hope you enjoy the paintings I post.  I really appreciate your comments!
