Friday flower + a nice message


A beautiful David Austin Strawberry Hills rose.


It was low light so the pics are super gritty. I kind of don't mind though :)


A received a really lovely email message this week that I wanted to share...


I had sent an email to Arite, the artist who painted "Reunited", my new painting that forms the beautiful backdrop of these images. I thought she might like to see where her artwork was now living.
Arite popped onto the blog to read my post and all of your lovely comments.
She returned my email  and I just wanted to share something she wrote...
"Actually I painted that piece after a recent trip to new york. On the first night I got there I had a dream of my grandmother who had passed on a few months earlier. So I entitled the painting reunited in honour of her memory, so I find it quite amazing that you share a similair experience. As one of your readers mentioned on your fabulous blog , art pieces have a way of finding you..."
(this will make sense if you have read the original post about the artwork earlier in the week where I comment on how the title resonated with me)
Isn't that fantastic? It just completely reinforces that I was meant to own this artwork.
Don't you just love those little moments of serendipity?
Have a wonderful weekend!
