This is my father's aunt, a Catholic nun with the Sisters of Charity in Evansville, Indiana. Her given name was Charlita, we know her as Aunt Tee, but at the convent, she is affectionally called Charlie!
In a much earlier post, is a painting of my late grandmother, Cricket, Aunt Tee's sister. She is now in her late 80's, and is the last sibling from my Grandmother's family. Aunt Tee loves to fish and rarely misses a day of fishing at the convent. To get around the grounds of the convent, she travels by scooter with a license plate that says, "here comes trouble". Every year, Aunt Tee returns home to SW Louisiana and is honored with a family reunion and a catfish fry. One of my brothers has a large, well-stocked catfish pond and at the party, Aunt Tee spends her entire time fishing. My other brother, was able to set his camera up on a tripod on the opposite side of the pond and snapped hundreds of pictures of Aunt Tee, each photo portrays a very serious little nun, dressed in a light blue habit, fishing until sundown.
With it being Spring Break this week, I was quite the prolific painter. Most of the paintings I painted were commissions, but I managed to fit a few in just for me. This is a study for a larger painting I have planned of Aunt Tee, perhaps this summer.
