that share a ‘voice’ that your heart hears.

My friend, Ann Yoder.
Our kids were in play group together.
Whenever we meet randomly in town,
it is talk, talk, talk…
Please don’t skip this link, she does excellent work.
The stories behind the paintings are like

This is my introduction to Sir George Clausen;
I’m so thankful for what I’ve discovered

A Normandy Peasant, 1887
[I love the colors and the background;

Next week I’ll move on to another artist.
I think I will remember this winter as the
season I discovered Clausen.
big breath…happy sigh
