The years go by

Birthdays. Special days.

One of my salvations as an artist has been the developing habit as the years go by of painting greeting cards for special people on special days.

It started out simply, for family, and still continues, as family and friends have increased.

These are blessings for me, as I paint more free and loose and imaginative than my usual uptight self.
