Sunday Sketches



This is a painting in which I started and completed yesterday for a dear lady/friend who is moving on to bigger and better things.  It was a token of my appreciation for all she's done and sacrificed for myself and others.  I so wish her the best in the future.

I do have wonderful prints of this one available in my shop here.

On another note, it's very inspiring, watching our weekly art co-op grow.  As I paged through previous weeks in celebration of our 2 year anniversary, it was exciting to see how each one of us are growing in our art and individual lives.  I can't tell you how much my heart was warmed.  So, here's to a brand new year of art, love, passion and a growing community to embrace and support one another, come what may!

OK...I'm off to visit everyone. Happy SS! :)
