Painting brings them closer

Although I am a very happy person, and really enjoy my life,
I must admit I miss my children. Lately when
I talk to them on the computer (write me and I'll
tell you how) I also draw them. Today one of
those drawings turned into this little painting of
my son. Being able to talk to Christopher when he's
on the other side of the world, has been an
incredible pleasure.

Got to go to bed early, I'll have more to say tomorrow.

Have a spectacular day.

I know exactly what you mean, Barbara1 My eldest son is in London which isn't that far away really but nevertheless we don't get to see each other very often, actually hardly at all and I miss him very much! Your son looks very kind and warm hearted - again a lovely portrait!

Hi Liza,

Thanks so much. My son in Windsor,
is about that far away. I understand
how much you miss your son. Both of my
guys are kind and warm hearted. I'm delighted if that come through.

Take care,

Barbara
