September 7th, 2008 · No Comments

Saturday Spot: My Sister the Artist..

July 26th, 2008 · 2 Comments

This is not really a spot, but rather a ramble of se7en wonderful artworks around our house. I am so grateful that I have a true artist for a sister and that my children can have real canvas paintings above their beds… Not to mention that they experience the process of art whenever they visit […]
