Of Dragonflies and Elves -Paint Party Friday

This is a drawing I recently found in one of my keepsake files.  It is an early illustration for a children's book.  I believe I was 19.  This girl looks SO much like my own daughters.  I did a double take when I found it!  Amazing, almost prophetic.  And you can definitely see how much I've improved in my artwork over these last 39 years!!!

Anyhow, Happy New Year, sweet Friends.  May God bless you with joy, wisdom, strength and comfort over this coming year.  Happy Paint Party Friday!

Merry Christmas! -Paint Party Friday

I have been away for a long time.  I have had a hard time of it this holiday season--But as I think back over this year, it has been such a wonderful year in so many ways.  When I remember the time I had with my Beloved--I am SO grateful for our 31 years together.

The above illustration is from a Christmas Children's Book I designed.   It is called Christmas with Grandma.

I have missed you all very much.   I pray all is well with you, and that your Christmas is a lovely one, sweet Friends.''
