Bev, your picture of Dylan is perfection.  It's wonderful.


Your Bali youngster is also so very good.  You do such amazing work. Congrats.

Thanks again everyone!!! You all are much too kind!!  :blush: !!
No drawing changes and no new drawings right now. . . . .
We have been battened down trying to survive the hammering of hurricane Arthur!!We have been without power for the last 18 hours and some people still don't have it connected. We have a small generator which keeps the fridge, freezer and the well system running. But no computers no lights. I felt really bad for the people in the  Carolinas when old Arthur came howling through at 65 MPH. He had been downgraded to a tropical storm and I couldn't imagine what he was like at 100MPH :eek: :faint:
I live to draw and paint, it a good thing that I don't have to draw and paint to live!

Bev,

Hope you are back to normal by now.

The next two days after Arthur passed over Cape Cod were two of the most beuatiful days anyone could hope for.  Hang in there; better days are coming.

Bev, ce doit être tout une expérience à vivre cet ouragan Arthur, aucun dommage de votre propriété j'espère.  Bonne chance et bon nettoyage, je pense à toi et votre communauté.    Bon courage.

Mea and Val you were both in the thick of this hurriccan Arthur hope all is well for you and all the people living in the  affected area.  Thinking of you.

Thank you Danielle for your thoughts. . . . no real damage, one shingle came off the roof and some branches broke from some of the big trees in the back yard, and my poor greenhouse had some windows smashed! But we didn't suffer very badly!! My thoughts & prayers are now with the poor people in Japan facing that massive Typhoon. . . .eek!!
