This is the work of Elizabeth Blue Sargent; her colours are always warm and sensitive, her lines always gentle and careworn. If you're on Facebook, please help verify her blog -- it deserves more readers.

I've always loved this painting.

I don't know if this is supposed to be me or just cheer me up (yesterday I was complaining -- quite bitterly -- about winter dragging on and on), but one thing's for certain: my niece Stella is a sweetheart. Now, if only my sister could learn the proper spelling of my name (I realize it's quite new, having only had it for forty-one years now), and coach my niece accordingly.


  1. winter IS dragging on, but this sweet little snowman could cheer anyone up

    hope you found some sunshine!
