I have been working on a new blog posting spot on my website in a tab instead of having 2 destinations to go to. This hopefully will be easier for me to post and for people that are interested in following my art journey. I am grateful for everyone that is and has been interested as I started this blog to be able to watch my art journey unfold.
This is a photo of our new Grandpuppy "Freddie". My husband Gord developed allergies to dogs and cats as an adult so our kids were never able to have either to call their own. We had guinea pigs, fish, gerbils etc. instead. This is our daughter and son-in-law's new love. We were able to spend the first couple of hours with Freddie after they picked him up from his previous owner. What a bundle of fun and love! Freddie is a heart full! This photo might be a future painting!
A wonderful hand made thank you!
You can imagine my sheer delight when I opened the large envelope to find this wonderful thank you card made by a grade 3 class at Louis Riel Elementary School in Calgary. I made book marks I call "Art Marks" from my original painting that I cut up. Doris ("Grandparent Volunteer") asked if she could have some for her class and I was more than happy to oblige. The wonderful gift I received was this thank you card that looked like the bookmarks and each child signed their name with one word to describe the bookmark: as blue as the ocean, artistic, awesome, beautiful, gorgeous....can't you just feel my happy dance.
