HAPPY BLOG BIRTHDAY - TWO YEARS


HAPPY BLOG BIRTHDAY - TWO YEARS
Originally uploaded by linfrye
It's hard to imagine that I've been blogging and sketching daily for the last two years! WHEW! I thought we'd enjoy a bit of candy to celebrate --!!! LOL

I do want to take a moment to thank all of you for your constant support and encouragement. I know, as much as I am enjoying this journey, that without your kind and generous words, especially when things went awry, that pencil, new in my hand, would have been put aside and the journey ended. So I am endebted to you, sweet sweet friends --- and thank you from the bottom of my heart!

For my Blog Birthday, I am joining our plein air group at a goat farm close by -- the farm we've visited earlier this year for dinner on the porch. Since I"m so cold natured, I may have to paint in my car with the heater on -- it's 29F! LOL My dh is bringing his instruments for some singing, and the kind hosts of Elodie Farms (http://www.elodiefarms.com) will provide some hot soup! Should be a wonderful way to celebrate!

Cathy (Kate) Johnson said...

Miss Lin, congratulations! You are an inspiration...and what a joyful jellybean painting for your "birthday!"

Lorraine said...

Congratulations gal! Your artwork is an inspiration for all -- not to mention your perseverance -- painting when you could be sleeping -- painting when you are exhausted -- you deserve all the accolades your artwork truly deserves, including this very good -- making me hungry -- rendering of jelly beans, even though I'd rather have chocolate in this weather!
Hugs,
Lorraine
