welcome fisherman's daughter....

the fisherman's daughter...

sara, who you all have probably heard me mention, by phone, emails or on the blog... has been a tremendous help to me over the many years.... whether it's unloading dishes and cleaning up the kitchen to make coffee before we head to the studio (this morning), to a much dreaded carpool, or even worse, animal sitting... sara has been with our family for many years, pulling up the loose ends to make our household, lives and work run smoothly...



sara's sister, beth, is having a baby.... a baby girl... the first grandchild in the family... the most anticipated event of the year... shower after shower, adorned with gifts, this baby girl has certainly already got it going on...

this piece titled - "fisherman's daughter" was created by sara herself as a gift for the new little one coming... the daughter of a fisherman and college teacher - what a combination of insights this little girl will have - from history to the adventure of the open waters...i think the love of learning and travel will always be on her mind...

i love this piece.... i think it is perfect, the colors of the open seas, sunrises and sunsets and fish swimming....i wanted to share this special piece with you.... you never know...just one day there may be a line of 'sweet' game boards....

Your gameboards are always so vibrant.At this time of the year with the beginning of the changing of the leaves, the shades on the pumpkin, the grasses in the meadow... they capture a reflection of the beauty that surrounds us.
Much like the quilts of Gee's Bend or anywhere else for that matter they bring colour to a place that may be void of such richness.
