When I was working on my series of "Loved Ones" - singers and musicians who meant something to me or had had an impact on me- I had planned to paint a handful of local musicians who have helped me along the way. I ran out of time before the "Loved Ones" show, but Jeanne Tolmie was top of my list and I knew I would eventually paint her. My daughter Chloe, Jeanne and I sang harmony back-up vocals in The Golden Country Clan, and both Chloe and Jeanne helped me immeasurably. Jeanne was always positive, never a Diva, and was always sweet and patient with me even when I had trouble learning a harmony that she was able to figure out in about 30 seconds flat. As I was the least experienced in the band and always feeling somewhat insecure in my abilities, that meant a LOT. We also had tons of fun. FUN I SAY!
