LOVED the comment you made on Suzan's post about Mothers/Mothers Day. I'm afraid I'm a member of your club. But, you are right... they taught us to be better mothers!

LOVE the painting. So beautiful & magical. Your talent is a blessing. Thank you for sharing & good luck in all you do.

Dearest ERIN!!!

It is so good to see you! I had not seen you in so long, but you are smart to take time away from the computer as I know you do! LOOK WHAT YOU ACCOMPLISH! My, your horses always inspire me and make me want a white horse EVEN MORE than ever. And how perfect your painting goes in this awesome shop! My work will be in the Twin Cities this summer as well!! Go watch Roman Holiday my dear; it just may inspire you in your art. Audrey and Gregory Peck are just charming and dreamy! Have a fabulous Memorial Day weekend! Anita

Dear Erin
I cannot tell you how much I love this painting... Well, I just love all your paintings.. Your style with the brush is touched by heaven itself.
I seem to be right behind dear Anita today... Hello dearest!
Thank you so much Erin for your most kind words about my sketch.. I just had to give it a try after seeing Anita's beautiful post with Audrey in Rome. Inspired!
Sending a big hug your way.
See you at the Paris party I hope.
Bisous!
Penny

Enjoy your day..
