JULIANA

I painted this portrait a few months back and realized that I never posted it.  This sweet little girl's name is Juliana and she's my friend's granddaughter.
Since my fall, I took time to rest and enjoy everyone's Art work! You guys are SO talented!!  Then I got the flu so more time to rest!  Sigh!!  But it's February and I feel wonderful!
I hope to post soon again.
Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my last post... you're all SO special to me.

  23. Bonjour ma chère amie,

    Je te remercie pour l'ensemble de tes petits messages qui me touchent toujours beaucoup.

    Je découvre avec enchantement ce joli portrait de la petite-fille de ton ami.
    Elle est toute mimi ! J'aime sa petite frimousse avec son petit ruban dans les cheveux assorti à la fleur de son petit débardeur.
    Un très joli pastel ! Bravo !
    J'espère que tu vas aller mieux et que toutes ces mauvaises péripéties ne seront qu'un mauvais souvenir.
    Gros bisous à toi, je te souhaite un dimanche aussi ensoleillé que le mien.
