“Every artist dips [her] brush into [her] own soul
and paints [her] own nature into [her] paintings.”  Henry Ward Beecher

I have been gifted by the Internet God/desses of Amazing Connections
to wonderful friends, and they’ve led to other friends, who led to writing buddies
and so many many great art buddies.  Who would have thought?

Today I am giving thanks for the connections.

I love sunflowers and the season is ending; I should have bought a
bouquet at the last farmer’s market.
Luckily, I have friends who will let me paint their images!
What better way to lift spirits than gratitude and sunflowers?

    Love this Kate. This is such a fun series. It’s one thing when you show the photo, but when you’ve seen the photo before and connected to it, it’s fascinating to see a different treatment.
