Kelli

Kelli – 4″x 4″oil painting by Victoria Kloch

Kelli is the daughter of my sister Marta Lisa. She is a gentle soul bringing an air of calm wherever is goes. As I write my thoughts about my niece I am sitting here with a smile thinking about her endearing ways of soft spoken nature yet quick to tease with her sassy wit.  A little story comes to mind when she was very young and I doubt that she would even remembers this. Kelli was born with a lot of hair and when she was a toddler it was fine and wispy. So Marta and I decided to give her a home perm. Who knows why she was adorable as she was, and I know what you are thinking, a perm on a 3 year old? Well back then it was sort of normal, but no one would do that today. It was no easy task working with rolling her fine locks on tiny rods and most little ones would get antsy and start kicking and screaming. Not sweet little Kelli. She fell asleep while Marta held her head up in her hands until we were done.

The orangey palette used reminded me of a 50-50 ice cream bar.  Refreshing on the outside and smooth and soothing on the inside. That’s my Kelli girl.

Vera

'Vera' 4

‘Vera’ 4″ x 4″ oil painting by Victoria Kloch

Vera came into my life when I was dating her husband’s brother. She soon became an important role model for me as I approached young adulthood. Vera and Raymond open their home to this bride giving me a wedding celebration as they had done for so many others. Vera, the mother of three sons named my first-born daughter. It seems like only yesterday when she came over in the middle of the night reassuring me through the painful process that two hours later lead to her birth. As I look back, I can clearly see how she was completely devoted to raising her family. But oh how I admired her when she not only went back to school, she went further and completed her master’s degree. My choice of color for this palette was to portray a soft, bubbly sophistication that Vera brings to others.

Aunt Ruth

 

'Aunt Ruth' 4"x4" oil painting by Victoria Kloch

‘Aunt Ruth’ 4″x4″ oil painting by Victoria Kloch

Ruth was my Grandmother’s sister. I could probably count on my one hand the number of times that I’ve seen her because she lived so far away.  My Grandmother told us all kinds of stories about her childhood growing up in San Francisco in the early 1900’s. She shared about her parents telling her that if she wasn’t a good little girl she would be given to the ‘Rag-Bottle-Bag Man’.  There was one that stood out the most. Hilda was older than Ruth and she was often put in charge of taking care of her little sister. One day Hilda took Ruth for a ride pushing Ruth in a baby buggy up and down the streets of the city.  What a ride it must have been. Somehow Hilda let loose of the buggy and sent Ruth flying. I don’t know who or how Ruth was saved, but I always loved this story.

Pamela

'Pamela' 4" x 4" oil painting by Victoria Kloch

‘Pamela’ 4″ x 4″ oil painting by Victoria Kloch

As I write with the memories of a five year old, Pamela and I were inseparable. She was one of seven children. Daily living with many mouths to feed was a struggle so eating fried dough was a necessary staple to satisfy the large family’s appetites. One day my mother gave me a birthday party with all my little friends. After receiving many new toys, the one gift that stands out to this very day was from Pamela. It came wrapped up in brown paper tied with sewing thread. I opened it with care and out fell a quarter. My mother quickly pointed out that big things come in little packages. She was right. I learned a valuable lesson that day. The colors for Pamela are in primarily colors, the colors of youth.

Patty

‘Patty’ 4″ x 4″ oil painting by Victoria Kloch

Patty was my friend for a few years prior to moving to another neighborhood. We were at the age where we could hop on our bikes and go! We rode all over the place mostly to go buy candy. We lived on sour apple sticks until we found Razzles. Patty was the bravest between the two of us. She would make the plans and I would follow. It was with her at the age of thirteen I smoked my first cigarette hiding huddled together on the side of my house while coughing without mercy. What were we thinking. My mother was home. Patty’s palette is the color of raspberry candy gum.

My niece Pam is the daughter of Patricia. As a little girl, Pam was always as sweet as can be. When she was young she was my little shadow. I adored her. Her Mother Patricia decided it was time to move back to Pennsylvania where they were raised to join many of the other family members. Now she is a working professional with two grown daughters of her own Emily and Karen.  Though I haven’t seen Pam since the family reunion in the 80’s, we have been able to keep closer tabs by the way of social medias. The spring colors of this palette are for her smile.

‘Bev’ 4″ x 4″ oil painting by Victoria Kloch

Bev came into my life a short time ago. Her son and my Tara are sweethearts who have known each other since the fourth grade. In an attempt to write about this wonderful lady, the first thing that came to my mind is that she is my soul sister. People come and people go, but the connection was immediately apparent. It’s hard to put my finger on it, perhaps there are unspoken understandings that we share between us. All I know is that I am very fortunate to have her in my life. Bev is warm at heart and fun to be around. Bev’s palette has colors in cool peach with oceany sea glass colors that flow and refresh.

Edna

‘Edna’ 4″ x 4″ oil painting by Victoria Kloch

Edna and Pete were a retired couple who lived across the street. They became surrogate grandparents to my young daughters. Edna always made an extra cup of pudding for each girl waiting for their visit. When my girls were small, I tried to limit their television viewing. Everyday at a 3:00 I noticed the girls asking if they could go visit Edna. Like clock work, again Dawn asked if she could go see Edna. I was curious as to why 3:00? I took my own little walk and peeked inside Edna’s front door. There they were. Tara, Dawn and the T.V.  It’s hard to imagine Edna without Pete. They came into this young mother’s life loving us as family. Edna and Pete, God’s love supreme.  Yellow was the color of their home.

‘Sharon’ 4″ x 4″ oil painting by Victoria Kloch

Sharon came into my life in the 1970’s when she married my Dad. It was so easy to welcome her into our family. If there is one thing that I have learned over the years, you do not have to be born into a family to be family. Sharon is vivacious, warm and bubbly. She just makes you feel happy to be alive.  I will always be grateful for the love she gave my father. Her devotion saw him through some difficult times with his illness later in life.  Sharon, daughter of Hazel, step-mother to Allen, Victoria and Mette, Grandmother to Tara and Dawn. For this painting I used refreshing colors, cool gray and hues of corals. Sharon, you have made a difference in my life. We love you Auntie Grandma.

‘Pamela’ 4″ x 4″ oil painting by Victoria Kloch

Pamela is my cousin fondly known as Pam. We share many childhood memories with family trips up to Lake Berryessa to see our Grandparents. Grandpa took us fishing and skiing. Grandma did the cooking. How can someone fry up canned potatoes and make them taste so good? When my cousin Kathy brought her pet monkey, Grandma repeatedly warned us kids to be careful that it might bite, but we thought he was just plain cool. When I think about Pam, I see Aunt Jean in her so much.  Life hasn’t always been fair. With her loving family and their faith in Christ has carried her through only to make her stronger. Her color palette is peach, gray, blue and green. Pam, a true inspiration of the power of God.

I found swimming two gigantic catfish. My Grandma had fishes swimming in her bathtub!  Mimi, you left us way to soon. I still had so much to learn from you. I love you.

The icing on the cake was getting to see the one room school-house where the ten children were raised.  My palette inspired by her green rolling countryside and yellow for her warmth as she welcomed us into her home.

I see her in Donna.  As a child I remember going to her home in the summer eating warm figs off her huge fig tree.  More than my own childhood memories, this sweet little thing was a testimony to true humanity. When ‘Aids’ first hit the gay community with a vengeance, everyone was treating the stricken like lepers. It was Marion who volunteered fearlessly to help the shut-ins with this illness. Marion mother to Donna, Linda and Wally. Loved by all that were fortunate enough to meet her.

This painting is to celebrate the life of my beautiful cousin Linda. I choose the streak of pink because when I came to visit, she would paint my fingernails. I miss you precious Linda.

‘Marta Lisa’ 4″ x 4″ oil painting by Victoria Kloch

Marta Lisa is my sister. She wasn’t always my sister. We started out as best friends. This is where it gets interesting. Marta Lisa was my best friend and she lived up the street.  We decided it would be wonderful if we could get our parents together because her dad and my mother each had been divorced for 10 years. I loved her dad and she loved my mom, why not? Little did our parents know that at the age of 14, we set out to make a parent trap. I think it may have been my Mother’s roast beef that actually won him over. To make a long story short, they did meet and were married for 42 plus years. When we were young, oh the fun we had. My sister is as warm as the colors of this painting. She has dedicated the past two decades working to support Hospice. I am truly proud of her. With her eye for glints and sparkle she has a heart of pure gold. Marta Lisa, we’ve come a long way babe!
