painting PINK

In memory of Clara Anderson—artist--beloved aunt, mother and role model

Clara had her breasts removed
Long before Pink was beloved
Bravely faced the doctors knife
Mother’s friend and navy wife

Clara danced on 30 years
Battled pain
Laughed through tears
And her paint brush 
Carried on
Splashed her color
Like a song
