Diane is a mentor, artist, teacher, art recovery expert, hanger of gallery shows, and more importantly, my friend. When I started my blog two years ago, it was Diane who, without fail, would leave a comment or six for every post I did, wanting me to know someone was listening. Diane and a small handful of non-blogging buddies saw me through the lean times, and I know they are still out there cheering me on from the sidelines. I appreciate their continued support more than they could ever know. Diane is going to scream when she realizes I pulled her name from the hat! The only problem with give-aways is I wish everyone who participated could win.
To the incredible blogging friends I have made around the world since then, thank you again for welcoming me into this amazing family I so enjoy being a part of.
Artsy Fartsy Update: I made the fabric board in the photo above which hangs in my studio. Having a ball adding treasures to it. And, this pastel I titled “Gone Shelling” got juried into the Student Show at the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center where I take my beloved art (therapy) classes on Mondays. The opening reception is tonight. Wish you all could join me! Have a wonderful weekend.
