Blessings


Private Collection

Seeing one year draw to a close and a new one begin always leaves me feeling introspective. 2013 was a bittersweet year for our family, but our blessings were abundant. For me, you're among those blessings, and I am very thankful. I appreciate your kind encouragement and look forward to seeing all 2014 brings.

Wishing you a very blessed and happy 2014!

Such a lovely cup, Darla. I have been thinking about doing something with tea but all of my cups are not pretty like yours.

I miss you Honey. <3
Happy New Year.

I spent this snowy morning enjoying your blog... from this most recent post all the way back to the very first one... What a pleasure to see your progression as an artist... to see how you've refined and honed your skills over the months and years... to watch your painting style and voice develop... Loved it...
