I once read a poem which had the whimsical idea that faeries are God's smallest angels. I rather like that idea. This little blue faery is a frequent imaginary visitor to my garden. She's part Genie as you can see. She lives in a brown glass bottle next to the fence in my yard, where in summertime she oft comes out to play with the gold fish after dark.
This is a drawing from long ago. I have been away from my computer for a bit, so haven't had time to scan in my latest artwork. My reference photo was lost with a tragic crash of a hard drive years ago--so I don't have the original picture to show you--but I can tell you this, she is not only lovely, but she is a sweet and talented young woman.
This Sunday will mark two years since my sweet husband flew away to heaven. It will be a bittersweet time. Sometimes it seems like forever since he left us--at other times, it is as though it were just yesterday. I am also speaking and performing for a women's retreat on Saturday. I would dearly appreciate your prayers for my family and me. I continue to improve daily from my surgery.
Happy Paint Party Friday, sweet, wonderful Friends!
