A Wonderful Surprise!


"There is magic in long-distance friendships. 
They let you relate to other human beings in a 
way that goes beyond being physically together 
and is often more profound." 
~ Diana Cortes

"Birds & Bees" by Sheila Delgado
Matted 8 x 10" Original Mixed Media

Today I received this amazing belated birthday/early spring gift in the mail from my online blogging buddy, Sheila Delgado. She had asked me for my address a while back and I didn't give it a second thought until this morning when this beautiful original painting arrived at my door! This painting, "Birds and Bees", was one of my favorites by Sheila from the January 2015 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge. Sheila and I met online a few challenges back and have been communicating ever since. I am so excited to own one of her gorgeous paintings! I have it right here on my desk on a display easel by my computer. It is so nice to have something so special and physical here from her to remind me that our virtual friendship goes beyond the boundaries of distance. Thank you so much Sheila girl! You are loved and appreciated more than you can ever know!

"Flower House" by Pam Schoessow
5 x 7" Original Watercolor with display easel

I also traded art pieces with another dear online blogging friend and received this awesome whimsical original from Pam Schoessow on Saturday. Thank you so much Pam! I adore your paintings!! It also is right here in front of me by my computer, right next to Sheila's. 
With original artwork by a couple of my favorite artists and online friends, I really feel the love and inspiration!!

Thanks to Sheila and Pam and to all of you
for your continued friendship and feedback.

Happy creating everyone!
