lucky girl

I had a short visit yesterday with the Thornton/Ogden clan - Andrew and Cynthia and Greg and Max (Azalea was at school).  The visit has been on my to-do list for over a month, but with holidays followed by colds, well it just took this long to make the seven minute drive over to their house.  The main purpose for the visit was to collect a bit of treasure ... Cynthia and Andrew had collaborated on a birthday/Christmas present for me.  It's crazy that it took so long and the suspense was killing me.  But such a sweet little treasure I now have.

Andrew made her house, the interior is lush layers of color and collage and Cynthia made the figure, wearing a gown of one of my favorite colors.  There's such a gentleness about her.  The serene background, the softness of her gaze on the goldfinch (my other favorite color - ochre) resting in her hand.  Naming her will come, but for right now she's found a home on the shelf above my computer so I have a clear view from anywhere in my studio.

Such a gifted family.  Many thanks to Cynthia and Andrew. 
What a lucky girl am I.

with much gratitude - kvk
