Oh, you’re wonderful! I know Casey is thrilled with this happy and charming sketch in her honor! I wonder—did you two know each other before your move to the Loire Valley or have you met recently? Isn’t it wonderful having art friends and soulmates? Thank you for spreading the word of her birthday.

ohhhh! love the rose and the vase! I was on vacation and am just getting back to visiting your blog. It’s always a thrill to see your lovely artwork. Your watermellon is inspirational. I’ve got a round bowling ball sized one on my windowsill right now just waiting to be devoured!
