My boss is leaving this week, its that time of year when we are all moving around in my little world. So the other two girls in the software section and I decided we would buy him a book on Mexico - coffee table type of book. We found a fabulous one, full of everything that makes Mexico the bright and lively country that it is. Yolanda said she wanted to think about what she wanted to write in it. I wanted a quote. In my search for quotes I came across this fabulous one from The Conundrum of the Workshops by Kipling.

And the first rude sketch that the world had seen was joy to his mighty heart,
Till the Devil whispered behind the leaves, "It's pretty, but is it Art?"

And also this

"A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles."
- Tim Cahill

I am blessed to have wonderful friends, many who I have met on this artistic journey. I hope you all know who you are! Thank you for being with me on my journey!

Anita, this portrait is superb. You have always been very good but you get better and better.

Yes, your customers can't help keeping you a portrait artist, you do fabulous work! But, you have what it takes to branch out, just keep experimenting and testing new things. That quote by Kipling really strikes the heart of the matter doesn't it, Lol!
