BERRIES AND KIWI, 11X14, OIL SOLD
Debbie Schiff of South Africa has awarded me the Sunshine Award. I met Debbie on Facebook due to the same last name. My husband's family originally came to the US from South Africa and I thought we might have a family connection (still don't know). Anyway, Debbie is a skilled watercolorist and I hope you will visit her blog here. Debbie, keep those beautiful watercolor/ink sketches comming, and thank you so much for this award.
Another little connection. I was checking out all the artists that Debbie sent this award to when I stumbled upon one that focused on Viera Wetlands birders. Turns out , this artist is from Tennessee and has recently been visiting the Wetlands to photograph the variety of birds that gather. The Wetlands are about 5 miles from my home. So, while sitting in my home, in just a few minutes, I find a connection to South Africa and then one down the street from me. Do you remember that old movie "Around the World in 80 Days"? Now it is more like, around the world in 80 seconds!
