I received a Christmas gift today. My friend Amber is a teacher, an actor and an amazing artist. Over the summer, she admired a photograph taken of two of my nieces, Kaylee and Alice, while we vacationed at the lake house. She liked the colors, she said, she thought they'd inspire her.
Little did I know what they were inspiring her to create. Pictured here is my gift: an original painting of two young ladies whom I love more than words can express, created for me by a woman whose talent, heart and soul make me wish I were more like her.
Pictured here is love, plain and simple. Young cousins enjoying their time at the beach, a doting aunt who could watch them all day long, and the incredible spirit of an artist who sees not only with her eyes, but with her heart.
I love the art that hangs in my home. I love that people I love have created it for me. Come by the Chez Maggie Gallery sometime. I would love to share it with you.
