Today is my Grandmother's 90th birthday. She's pictured above with Gavin, one of her two namesake great-grandchildren (The Princess is the other, and she's got about a jillion other greats to tag along with these two).
"Gomp" is the most amazing woman I know. The things she has seen - and conquered - in her lifetime make my challenges seem trivial. And she's still going strong, with a hearty laugh, a practical and healthy dose of common sense, and a smile that hugs you from across the room.
She told me I could do it all, and was so convincing that I never doubted it for a second.
Thanks for always believing in me, Gompie!
And thank YOU, as always, for looking at - and sharing - my artwork and musings with your friends and family,
PS Gomp says tonight is your final chance to vote her favorite grand-daughter into the Daily Painters Top 5, so get off your patooty and do it! That's what she says, not me ..... Please vote 5 gold stars for Painting a Dog a Day: http://www.dailypainters.com/blog/contest.
