My Girls

I recently had the pleasure of purchasing some beautiful art from a friend of mine, michelle gd. She's an amazing illustrator and photographer.

I came to know michelle through an online course and through our blogs. Over time, she has become a key person in my life, because we touch base at least weekly to encourage and inspire each other. We have become partners in this land of life. I'm truly blessed by her.

One of my dreams, since I discovered she was an artist, was to purchase one of her "girls". I soon decided that I couldn't purchase just one... When my girls arrived, I was filled with happiness and I was amazed at the intricacy in which michelle does her work. I can't believe how beautiful the coloring is. I think she must use colored pencils sharpened to the point of a stick pin, seriously...

Take a look at michelle's store here; where you can find her "illos". There's also an option to order something custom and special if you please.

Here are the three girls that I purchased:

Leaping-I've leapt and continue to leap...

Spunk-I'm owning who I am each and every day...

Voice-I feel this blog space is where I sing my tune...

These girls speak to me; they all sing my tune. I'm so happy they're here and that I can say a lil' bit of my friend is here in my studio where I create and sing my tune for all of you.
