“Once the ‘what’ is decided, the ‘how’ always follows. We must not make the ‘how’ an excuse for not facing and accepting the ‘what.’”
– Pearl S. Buck
Boy, isn’t that the truth!
My Chilly Flamingo
Watercolor & Ink
This little flamingo is modeling the new winter line. I did put palm trees on her scarf, to make her feel at home.
We are enjoying some amazing weather here in Oklahoma. It is supposed to be in the 70′s today and tomorrow! But…. Tuesday, the high is supposed to be 27. **shiver** I’m going to take advantage of this beautiful day and do graphics on store windows in Quinton. Saturday, I hope to do my long cross country flight with my instructor. YAY!!
