Hi Everyone!
Most of you know that last month was my birthday. I received some really wonderful gifts, great e-cards from a lot of you, out to dinner, and really just a wonderful birthday. My brother, Steve and I don't live close to each other so he would phone and tell me my gift was in the mail. Ha Ha yeah... OK. He would NOT tell me what it was. Well yesterday I get a box from FedEx. (DO NOT DROP) is written on the front of it. I open it, carefully removing the bubble wrap. OMG!!!!! and OMG!!! again.
My brother bought me a piece of art that when I saw it I sat down and cried.
It is a stunning piece of Native art created by Pat Lambrecht- Hould. If you don't know her work then click Pat's name. She has a process where she embellishes gold and silver leaf into her paintings. Her abstracts are stunning as well. It turns out the two of my brothers are friends with Pat. Hmmm think I need to go visit my brothers and meet this lady. LOL
So ya wanna see what Steve sent to me???
15x20" Soul Dancer

Remember my background and that half of my house is Native design.
This painting is so bright and in the right light the gold and silver leaf "pop"
Plus all of you know how I LOVE red!!!
Thank you Steve, I will cherish this forever!
Honor and integrity in art, in life.
