Juror Joe Norman awarded my painting ‘Prognosis’ first prize in the Limelight Gallery at Binders in July 2015. My great niece, the talented singer and straight A student Rylee Sanders posed for me, along with professional models Annie Jefferson, Barefoot Bill Pacer, and his wife Ladonna Allison. The five of us spent many hours together, much of them listening to the Adrian Mole series of comic novels by the late Sue Townsend. The humor only enhanced Ladonna’s playful willingness to ham up her role as a doctor uncertain what the prognosis is for any of her patients or for the health care system as a whole.
