Another gift from Jan

A couple of weeks ago, I went to my friend Jan's house for dinner.  My friends Nancy and Patty were also there.  We ALWAYS have a good girl's night together.  Much to my surprise, Jan gave us all a gift when we left.  It is the stone container pictured above, that I turned into a very elegant brush holder.  It is speckled in a natural pattern and is very chic...just like Jan.  I added the pitcher in the back....but it has nothing to do with the dinner or Jan.  It was on the table a couple of days later when I was sketching with friends Celeste and Carrie.  I think Carrie put it there for her sketch, but it worked for mine, too.  Good friends are the greatest gifts. Of course, this painting is on a card which I will now use as a thank you note to Jan and use this as an opportunity to thank Carrie for putting that pitcher there!

  1. Another beautiful thank you card...well, I guess I am grateful to these people who keep giving you things...because I get to see all the resulting paintings. It is such a clever idea, because it allows you (and us) to "spend time" with these thoughtful gifts.
