My latest encaustic. It measures 12 x 20" on a deep cradled wood panel.
So I'll be scarce for the next little while. House guests arriving in several hours. John is in the kitchen making his killer Pozole (the aroma is killing me!) and I need to go do my part to be ready. We'll be spending Thanksgiving with my oldest daughter at her house and drinking leisurely lemon drops here at home out of the beautiful new martini glasses John picked up yesterday. These particular friends are fascinating world travelers who share their exotic experiences with us. I love all my friends. People are my only wealth.
I am thankful for so much this year. Thankful that illness bypassed a young mother that I worried over. Thankful that my family has come through another year with health intact. Thankful for my husband. For my friends who are like my own arms and legs in my love and appreciation for them. I love my crinkly old body and I am grateful that it lets me enjoy my life without breaking down. It is a good body. Every morning the first thing I do is hold my own hand and greet the day and myself for having the gift of one more day.
I'll post when I can but if I haven't answered your email please forgive. Hugs to you and you and YOU.
