Here is the photo that I sent to her to paint from. She is a master with paints. I have tried many times to paint and it always looks like a kindergartener’s work, using their non dominant hand.
Lisa has been a loyal reader and has left a comment on very nearly every single one of my three hundred and sixty-three published posts (ah the wonders of WordPress statistics), including the very beginning ones that were of rather poor quality. She always has something nice and complimentary to say. I do so appreciate that, then as well as now. I had the extreme pleasure of meeting her in person at the Chicago Spring Fling. Click here to see more people photos from that fun event. This photo was taken at the camera magnet, The Bean, at Millenium Park. My traveling companion and good buddy, Gail of Clay and Limestone and I ran into Lisa and her laugh a minute sister, Tena in the lobby of the hotel after we had stowed our suitcases and wanted to explore downtown Chicago. We ate, we shopped and we got to know each other well before meeting the other blogging attendees. Special times with special friends. Thanks, Lisa, for your treasured friendship.
In the photo above, from left: Me, Tena, Gail and Our Lady of the Brush, Lisa.
Lisa sent me a digital photograph of the painting that is shown at the top of this post. I added the watermark since it is her image.
