  1. Good evening sweet Tammie Lee! I love to be welcomed by your smiling art. You should have seen me trying to watercolour today...NOT GOOD! I am better at scribbling ideas with words, and even that requires a lot!

    What a beautiful full oak tree! Any day now, I hope to see some leaves poking through their buds, here in Alberta!

  22. I'm looking down a number of posts I've missed and reveling in your drawing. Your acorn nymph is so beautiful she touches deep into my soul.

  23. I love oak trees too. I LOVE your paintings as well. That sweet acorn nymph just fill my eyes. She has such a droll sweetness about her face and in her expression.

    I've always thought of oak trees--especially the very old ones--as wonderfully warm old men.

    I often hug oak trees when I come upon them. Hahahaa...people think I'm nuts.

    (grin) ((hugs))


Lovely of you to drop by! I love hearing from you~
