*******
....Sharing only one drawing today (running behind on getting the artwork posted!) &  still working on more orders to be shipped.

This was sent to me by a very sweet friend, whom I met through this wonderful world of blogging...and has ordered many other drawings of the art I do for her family members.

Thank you LV for sending these photos of it matted/framed and displayed!


LV sent a sweet email with these photos:  
"...They really were proud of it.  Said several of their friends had commented as to where they got it.  They were impressed...."

This is a collage of her piece drawn entirely with the last name MORGAN and the family members throughout the tree in their own leaf. Thanks LV for your neat idea for a family tree. I had shared this on an earlier post, but thought to show it again with the photos that LV sent.


 ...VERY excited to the upcoming addition to our family tree!

First of all, thank you for sharing some the special steps in your daughter's life. You did a great presentation. Nothing like having a new baby around either. Blessings to both of them. Also, appreciate your displaying my latest sketch. Just wish the pictures had been better. They no way do justice. Thanks again.
