i LOVE surprises in the mail.
Well, ok, this one wasn't a total surprise,
since i'm the one who bought it on ETSY a few weeks ago.
i love the work of Jeannie L. Paske,
from Obsolete World.
I bought this cute little print a few weeks ago called
Flight of the recently departed.
Isn't it gorgeous?
Watercolor, charcoal, pastel and ink.
Some things just speak to us louder than others.
This was one of those things.
And she sent these other lovely things
along with the print.
So precious and kind of her...
On another note,
I did this one last night,
to be donated to a charity for cancer.
Not quite done, but i thought i'd post anyway.
And on yet another note!
(just cause i don't want anyone to get bored here)...
this cute little drawing was given to me a while back,
by a little boy in the 3rd or 4th grade,
when i was doing an art project with children
in the local elementary schools.
So precious, isn't it?
I was so amazed
at how little encouragement they needed
to get all excited about art,
and reach for the stars.
For many of them,
you just knew in your heart
that they heard more criticism at home
I made sure to tell them every day
that they were all fabulous artists
and important to the world.
On the last day,
many of them gave me little drawings like this one,
and despite the misspelled name,
i love these little drawings
as much as the prints i buy on ETSY. :-)
ok, so let's end this one with a bang,
I got this in the mail yesterday
from a great friend.
A cute little book with vintage photos and text
that had me laughing all morning.
Yeah, i think we should all have cocktails,
does everyone agree?
