Line by Line
I am loving this series! It is a series of drawing lessons that is actually quite helpful. My favorite is the lesson on how to draw plants, trees and flowers.
I would highly recommend that you take a look whether or not you are an artist. It is fascinating to see an artist work, how they work, the choices they make, all the things that go into creation.

|Red Ram on Black Background|
I like the ram motif in traditional eggs. Spirals are traditionally seen as a protection symbol and the ram has it built right in! This egg has a lot of protection motifs: the "wolves teeth" that encircle the vertical eternity band as well as the tiny wolves teeth within the eternity band. I have always like the color combination of red and white. It is so strong and jaunty and cheerful with no doubts about itself.

I hope you have a lovely Friday. The weather here is beautiful - sunny and in the 70's. I'm going to go have lunch with my husband and then come back and do a quick housecleaning for my daughter's birthday party tomorrow. We are very happy that Scottyroo and Christini are coming to entertain the 22 cupcake-and-juice-fueled three-year-olds who will be running amok in our house tomorrow.
