And here she is! My first successful monarch. The first two emerged today. I called my first three Eddy, Freddy, and Teddy. Eddy and Freddy turned out to be Edwina and Fredricka....Teddy should give us a gender reveal by tomorrow!

Like Jane, I am painting songbirds during this time. This is a house finch, done in watered down acrylic.

Seems like good advice.

This time last year I had just completed chemo and was facing surgery and radiation treatments. It was all complete by the end of April and I am so grateful for my good outcome. I decided I would paint an angel for my annual Christmas card each year as a way fo commemorate my healing gift from god. Here is my first one - I hope it will be the first of many. ;-) Merry Christmas, my new friends, thank you for encouraging and helping me.

I painted these rocks while going through chemo (when I had the energy). they have Scripture references on the back and my friends took them and left them various places all over the US - and even Spain! I hope people who find them will choose to look up the scripture, but if they don't that's fine - I like to think a bird nest image is a message of life and hope, and that is what I wish to share.
