Hi Everyone!
 Last week I had a visit from a dear friend that brought me a birthday gift. She knew I was down with lupus during my real birthday time and didn't want to bother me until I felt better. Donna arrived at my home and in her hands was a pastel picture. She handed it me saying, " I was going through some of my dad's things and came across this. I knew it was yours as soon as I saw it."
How honored I am to have a piece of art that was created by my friend's father. Then I saw the painting. ARE you kidding me? This is as if Donna's dad knew me.  As I inspected the painting I noticed that  he created this the year I was born. How fortunate am I to have a friend like Donna?
Thank you again dear friend. I am making a frame for this and placing in with my other skulls and skeletons.
A 62 year old painting just waiting for me.

Honor and integrity in art, in life.

  5. Nicole, thanks for posting that pastel, I am sure my dad is grinning at us both, me for giving and you for loving it. Perfect. I think I was just thinking about starting to paint about that year, makes me feel even older LOL, but I started within a few years of that, as it was cool to be with my dad in the basement and being allowed to mess with paints. Enjoy. Donna
