FORT WORTH (CBS 11 NEWS) - Last week friends, family and caregivers came to celebrate Delores “Toppy” Cochran, an amateur artist displaying her paintings among some of the greats like Georgia O’Keefe at the Amon Carter Museum of Art.

The 91-year-old started painting three years ago as therapy after having a stroke.  Her love for painting has grown through Amon Carter’s program for seniors, “Sharing the Past Through Art.”

Julie Cecil is the resident program director at Sterling House where Cochran lives.

“I always ask them what is something you’ve always wanted to do, something that you’ve never gotten a chance to do, a wish. She came to my door and said I know what mine is, I want to have an art show.”

Through the “Wish of a Lifetime Foundation” Toppy’s wish came true and 24 of her masterpieces are currently on display at Amon Carter in the exhibition, “Toppy’s Passion.”

You can view them through May 29th.
