I'm Feeling Grateful
For the many friends and family who came to the reception at Collector gallery...
(my paintings are still up for another week)
( these three below stole the show!)
...For my terrific illustrators' group, who bring desserts like this!
(and much needed illustrative advice, of course)
and for my wonderful writer's group, who also make amazing desserts!
(and excellent critiques, too)
... for this glorious springtime...
all of our Cecile Bruner roses decided to bloom at once this year.
...and for time to work on the story of this incredible woman...
Here's a first color sketch for her story, playing with her style... and mine.
