Hi Fifi~
I always love visiting you...to see what new painting you have done. I can't believe you have so many completed projects!!! (I struggle to finish just one!)

Your French paintings are so much fun! My DIL would love all of your paintings. Since she and my son returned from France last spring, she has been decorating their home with anything "French". I know she would love to have one of your notecards...and she will probably receive a painting for her birthday, next spring.
Jane (artfully graced)

ps Thanks for your sweet comments. It does get a bit loud around here these days...the band will be here through the weekend. Then I should be back to normal...
