A Bright Spot

In my dreary depressing day yesterday, there was a lovely bright spot.  Her name is Joanne.

Joanne is an Alberta artist and heard about Dawsyn through a mutual friend's blog.  She found a link to my blog through Cynthia's blog and then linked us to her virtual world on her blog!  I LOVE technology!!

Joanne contact me and offered one of her original paintings for our live auction.  It's a beautiful watercolor called "Fiesta Pears".   I'm so excited for you all to see it for yourselves ... but I'm a techno-idiot so can't post a picture here.

Joanne drove into Calgary to meet me at Alberta Children's Hospital yesterday afternoon to deliver this picture.   She is every bit as lovely as the pictures she paint!  After a harrowing couple of hours with Dawsyn, her brief visit encouraged my spirit and truly brightened my day!  Thank you, Joanne!!

Please visit her website at www.joannegiesbrecht.com or her blog at www.thistledown-arts.blogspot.com.  While you're doing that, I may just call Cynthia for a blogspot tutorial!!

Isn't Joanne a wonderful person? I just love her :o) I can't wait to see her painting in person too.

I'm available anytime to "help" you with your blog. And by "help" I mean bang our heads together and have a giggle fit, because that will seriously be all we accomplish ;o)

That sounds like a WONDERFUL blogging session! After this fund raiser is over, we'll have to do exactly that.

Yes, Joanne is wonderful. I am really hoping to see her on Friday night!!
