Look! Look! Look !


I'm breathless people! Just LOOK would you, at what my dear friend Johanna Spinks in California has drawn! 'Tis ME !-a painted drawing of me in the hat that I've made especially for her ! Isn't that amazing? Are you jealous?;) hehe. Johanna is well into the beginning of a challenge that really requires great discipline ,that is to complete one drawing EVERY day for 365 days. Wow! and I tell ya every single drawing that she has done is bloody superb! She truly is a master of her craft. Her command of brush & paint would be of a calibre that most will never reach no matter how much we try ,learn (sad but true!) she simply has an old masters' gift-that's why there are so few with this natural expertise. So this is her drawing for today...ME! Oh good gawd I am so chuffed & flattered!! The thing is my husband wants to buy this work now as he doesn't want anybody else to have it! The sweetheart! I'm not objecting mind you!

You won't be at all disappointed should you pop over to Johanna's Blog right now & have a nelly! Then,I would recommend that you continue on to her fabulous website . Seriously have a look ..truly inspiring.

Thankyou so much Johanna...I LOVE it!

Oh my goosh!! This was the first thing I saw when I opened my bloggy thing--what an amazing gift (in both senses of the word)--it's been a fantastic hat week, indeed!

I just loved seeing the evolution of this, from the photos of your house>>painting of house>>making of hat>>to this drawing. I love the way creativity flows from inspiration to inspiration, like music.
