“Don’t assume a door is closed; push on it. Do not assume if it was closed yesterday, that it is closed today.”

Pink Flamingo Watercolor
Yesterday, I was flamingoed! Yes, it’s true! Kana Tyler over at Kana’s Notebook flamingoed me! Here is her flamingo.
When Kana started blogging, she thought her audience would be only her
husband, mom and dad. When she discovered the joy of community that comes with
blogging, she wanted to thank some of us by flamingoing us. Read her post here and all of this will make more sense. I have been
enjoying Kana’s blog very much, as I do all of you in my blog roll. I don’t get
around to comment as often as I like lately, but I very much appreciate my blog
So, consider yourselves flamingoed, too!
Don’t forget that Friday is the day to
post your Halloween Challenge
post, be it a painting, a drawing, a poem, or
whatever makes you happy. Post on your blog and come back here and give us a
link, so we can go see your post. I can’t wait to see what you do!
My Pink Poppy Flamingo looks like it’s already in costume. he he I painted
that one in a hotel room, during a terrible snow storm last February.
