My friends' art

Right off the top here I want you to know that I love
my friends' art.  So if I don't mention you in this
piece, it just means I mentioned you somewhere else,
or you're on my blog list, or I will mention you.
Okay?  I've been excited for a few weeks now by
a beautiful Nicki Ault painting that hangs in my
studio.  Right now my studio is looking a bit bare
because 31 of my paintings are out at galleries!
Wow.  I have to pinch myself about that.  Yes it's true.
So the painting by Nicki is almost alone in there.  I
hope it doesn't feel lonely.  It makes me happy
every time I look at it. Nicki is in a class all by herself
when it comes to painting water -- it is one of her
passions and a specialty. I own paintings by quite a
few other painters too and I'll feature them another day.
Each one means so much to me.

Thanks for being a great painter Nicki and thanks
to all of you -- please keep painting.  You dazzle me.

Have a loving-and-being-inspired-by-friends'-art day.

Hi Nicki,

Yes it does. I have other work scattered throughout the house, but the painting by you is right there while I'm painting making me smile, and making me want to keep on painting and loving the work.

Hi Linny,

Thank you so much. This painting is a lesson for me every time I look at it. It's very small -- just 5 x 5 inches, and it packs a big canvas punch. I love that.
