Swans -Paint Party Friday

I am re-posting this piece.  I am still not feeling well.  I go back to the doctor this afternoon.  Thank you for your patience!  I will have some original artwork for you next week--hopefully!

I adore fairy tales.  Over the years I have read many stories about swan sisters, brothers--such imaginative, wondrous flights of fancy! 

In this piece, there are two swans, one of which smiles at the viewer, while the other flirts outrageously with the first. Both are the lovely eyes of the swan maiden.

Above you see my beautiful model Melissa.  She has been an inspiration from the very day we met--which was just after she was born! Her Mom and I are best buds and I am grateful to this lovely young woman for her kindness and sweet heart.  She is my good friend.

Thank you for dropping by.  Thank you for your good thoughts and prayers.  I'm still under the weather a bit.  I hope to be back to normal soon.  Dear Friends, you are always a big encouragement--I look forward to your visits here!  Love, joy and peace to you, dear ones!

Sheltering Hands -Paint Party Friday

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say to the Lord,
"My refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust."
~Psalm 91:1, 2

His Shadow overshadows Life's Shadows.  
Take heart, be strong, 
There is great Hope 
In the midst of life's gathering storms

I am re-posting this drawing, because I am still ill and don't feel like doing much.  I've been sick for about two months now...   So, I finally went to see the doctor for the third time and she says I have pneumonia.  With antibiotics, I hope to feel better in a few days.  Which will be good, because I am speaking at a Women's Retreat this coming weekend!  Of all things, our subject is "Journey to Joy."

You are such a blessing to my heart when you come by.  Happy Paint Party Friday! ((hugs))

Golden Eagle -Paint Party Friday

I've always loved Eagles. There is something so majestic and noble about them. We have the privilege of hosting a family of Bald Eagles who nest near the river. He doesn't land in the trees close by, as does the Eagle at my parent's home. But every now and then you can spot our Eagle diving in the river for fish, or circling over the town.

This Eagle was a Christmas gift to my Dad, who, in his own way was a grand old Eagle.

I am re-posting this, because I am just too sick to do anything else.  Ugh.

Thank you for dropping by.  You are always a big encouragement--Love, joy and peace to you, dear ones!

Little Sleeper -Paint Party Friday

Here is half of a sideways legal length Pen and Ink I finished in 2013.  It's my idea to make it the center pages of a coloring book.  My art computer died, though I was able to rescue everything on it--and I will have a replacement soon. In the meantime it is hard for me to put needed copyrights on the actual scans, so I'm posting artwork I've already scanned and copyrighted.

I am very sick.  As you know, I caught the flu.  At first I felt better but then I got worse again.  If this continues, will go back to the doc to see what's up.

Hope you are having a great weekend, sweet Friends!  It is such an encouragement when you drop by and comment.  You are all a blessing to my heart!  Happy Paint Party Friday!
