I love you this big ... I finished this little LOVE ANGEL & RED BIRD painting yesterday. Don't you love her little leopard vest and her yellow and black striped socks? What about the little red bird on her head holding a message of love? You can bid on her on eBay or purchase it right away in my Etsy store. Not much time left before Valentine Day and I think she would make a wonderful gift to someone special to you! We are having a beautiful winter week, full of sun, hope of warmer days, no new snow and is it a hint of a smell of maple sap boiling on the stove soon to come yet too early. I am in particular good creative spirit, you know, when it flows it pours! No problems with production, sparks of ideas or positive attitude, it is all there and I have tons of it! Francois (the husbie) is in a creative mood too, working on a new metal art portfolio a big client asked for and he is anxious to be working outside in his summer shop. Ulysse (the son) is doing wonderfully in his first year of high school, getting into music option quite seriously, switching from clarinet to saxophone to trumpet, tyring to find the instrument right for him. He made a bunch of new friends and has grown up so much since September ... But I guess highschool will do that to you ... He too is dreaming about building fires outside to smelt aluminum for his sculptures, working on his little summer shack and going trout fishing. In case you are not aware of this, I am having two different giveaways in the same week, Just Because Giveaway and One World One Heart Giveaway. Both surprise prizes will be different and awesome so make sure you enter both separately! Enough chatting now, gotta go make myself a new pot of hazelnut cream coffee and finish a few more paintings ... Hope you have a great sunny day too!
