Painter, Poetess and generous friend

I was recently gifted with an amazing piece of art created by my friend, Suki.
She is also a friend to many of my blogger and real life pals.
Today is a dark, rainy mess, but inside my house this amazing art glows!

Here I've lit a candle to get more of the gold to shine.
You can't imagine how beautiful this is in person!
Some of you have seen it, I know ;)

This is what normally resides here. A wonderful tree etching I found in an antique shoppe. Brian's Rhode Island red rooster. A favorite ceramic urn, a wrought iron art nouveau piece, and a sign that lets me know I am blessed every day.
But I just knew Suki's art had to have this space.
It belongs here.
And I don't need that sign to help me remember just how very blessed I am.
I already know.

Thank you, Suki. I am overwhelmed by your talent and your generous heart.  When I count my blessings, I count you twice.



  1. I am more than behind in visiting, but when I saw you got a gift from Suki...I had to stop and see...

    Oh, it is perfect, makes that wall come alive and the colors are lovely.

    And it is always more pleasure to have a friends gift to gaze upon...

  2. Indeed you are twice blessed Lo and so is Suki for her wonderful gift to you!!

    Ps, I miss your art!

  3. I've seen this and others in person and I understand why you are blown away--just gorgeous gorgeous .

    Suki is so multi-talented. Her fingers create magic and so do her words. I keep counting my blessings also, lo, for the talent and creativity that infuses my life.

  6. OMG what a gorgeous wonderful piece of art that is!!!!!
    And I would recognize it as Suki's even without knowing who gave it to you!
    It is just more than lovely!
