Full Moon Calling.
When I saw a recent painting done by a favorite artist/blogger friend, Sharon Mann at Make Art… Magic Happens, I told her I loved it so much, it made me want to paint it.
Sweet Sharon encouraged me to do it!
And so I did – and here it is….. A painting I did at 4AM one morning last week when I couldn’t sleep.
Be sure to check out Sharon’s absolutely amazing original version of this, which she titled, Call of the Raven. Sharon has a style very different from mine, but one I absolutely adore and admire. I love the texture she creates. I love the whimsy of her style. I love the range of subjects she chooses to explore and create. And to top it off, she is simply a lovely person!
Sharon was one of the first to send an absolutely amazing handmade gift when I learned I was to become a grandma over a year ago. She painted a photo of a batch of my cookies and gifted me with the beautiful piece of art that has graced my kitchen wall for several years now. She was one of the first few dozen people to purchase my first published children’s book – and then share it to her friends.
About a year ago, Sharon lost her husband and best friend. It was a life-altering experience for her, and she took a break from blogging until just a few weeks ago. It is so wonderful to have her back blogging and inspiring so many of us artist wannabees!
Thank you for allowing me to paint your art Sharon. I enjoyed it immensely! Thank you for your inspiration, encouragement, but most of all your friendship.
Be sure to check out Sharon’s blog. You are in for a real treat and a wonderful new friend!
Cheers & Hugs,
