  3. In response to day 195 I am thankful for:
    1. God's gift of salvation through Jesus Christ.
    2. The Holy Spirit's prompting to take note of all God provides (including your beautiful artwork and photos, Amanda!)
    3. My husband, Dick, who is my soulmate, friend, cheerleader, lover, and warm embrace.
    4. My kids and grandkids--who bring me joy and pride and heartache and laughter and tears--what a great bunch I am blessed with.
    5. Blogging--God has used this medium to bless me in sooooooo many ways AND to pull me up and set my feet on the Rock again when I need it.
    Thanks for the inspiration to think on these things, Amanda.
    Merry Christmas!
    Pam

  5. love your challenge. :) i was just recently thinking about making wednesday the day of posting my own children drawings. I think it might be interesting to compare my art nowadays with how i used to paint, sketch and draw - i think children's drawings are so natural. and i thought it might be interesting to know what you think about this idea. maybe we could even work together on this project. so that we can link to each others posts. would love to hear from you.

  6. Hey Kelly many thanks for your kind words, much appreciated!

    M Pax, they are gorgeous aren't they, just the thing you need on a grey day!

    Pam, thanks for sharing, so many wonderful things to be thankful for, and to being inspired and creative just as we were created! You have a blessed Christmas as well!

    Hilary, ah bless you, I am bracing myself, I can't believe how cold it's getting, still trying to keep up with my walking!

    Hey Jay, its definitely great to see how far we've come, I love looking in some of my early art journals and seeing the growth and sometimes change of direction. We will definitely have to put our heads together to see what ideas come up. Take care for now

  9. Ella, the feelings mutual, I get inspiration from your photographs as well, loving the ginger biscuitsxx

    Jay I will have to look through some of my earlier work, I did a lot of graphite work back then.

  10. oh, would love to see them.
    graphite works remind me of the street artists in europe drawing portraits of tourists for money.
