The Yellow Rose of Texas honors my mother, Margaret Ann Walker Rodrigue. Mom was always a beauty, right up until she passed away at age 93. Her true black hair went to pure white while her face remained wrinkle-free. She was beautiful to look at, but strong! Growing up in Texas as the eldest of four girls, Texas was in her blood throughout her life, although she lived in California from age 23. Trips to Texas and visits with her family were highlights of her life. Her school photo and memories bring detail to the portrait.
