Iron Door on the Van Gogh Wall

The wall above and to the right of this old iron door behind an ancient church in Slovakia is, astonishingly, covered with Van Gogh "murals." Here's the Google Street View link to it. Go see it!

Brass Bird

While Christmas shopping, I came across this little brass bird. Its big feet made me smile so I bought it for me and painted it as a Christmas card for my daughter's new in-laws.  Yes, she got married this summer! Like her mother before her, the planning and the stress of a big wedding got to be too much so they put together a wedding in a very hectic week's time, on a beach in Oregon, with the groom's parents and sister, my parents and I in attendance.  It was a perfect, fairy tale wedding.
