Illustration Friday - Multiple

Hmmmm - multiple - just because one fairy in your garden is never enough! SO looking forward to spring - which is in the air today. Even though there's still snow on the ground, the sun is shining and it's in the 30s. It's a heat wave for Chicago!

Illustration Friday – Theory

Just one theory that finding love is a solitary pursuit. Keeping it is definitely not solitary.

Illustration Friday – Choose

I have a friend who has fought depression of one sort or another all her life. And who basically comes from a family full of mental issues and relationship dysfunction. When I created this piece I created it thinking of her. That the ability to choose our path lies within each of us - that what has happened before doesn't have to dictate who we are or what choices we make today. This is something my friend struggles with each day of her life, and it has not gotten easier for her over the years to be able to make healthy choices for herself. Throughout her life she has had certain "angels" who have tried to surround and protect her, encourage her, and help her see a way out - something she just will not choose, or is not able to choose for herself. So, I say again - the power to change things is still withnin each one of us if we make a choie that lets it blossom.

Illustration Friday – Blanket

Several years ago we were blessed to adopt a beautiful little girl from China. When I saw this topic, I immediately thought "blanket of love." We were so supported by our coworkers, friends and family, who were as excited as we were, that we really felt that we were surrounded by a blanket of love. Nell's coming home was truly an event that was celebrated by everyone we knew.
