“Hope is like a road in the country; there was never a road, but when many people walk on it, the road comes into existence.”

Funky Street Lamp – 3″ x 5.5″ Watercolor
I had a lot of fun painting this. The funny part is that when I
finished it and showed it to the hubby, he said… “That would have made a
better Christmas card.” This was a mere 18 hours after I dropped 45
Christmas cards in the mail… with a magpie sitting on the head of an elk
in the snow. You know… snow… Christmas… Gotta love him!
