We got home and I was not really tired, actually I couldn't sleep at all. I ended up turning on the TV and "Deal or No Deal" was on, it was a special speed show where they picked all their cases at once and only had 20 seconds to decide. It made for fast and furious tv, but it did change the people up much faster than normal. I grabbed my little sketchbook by the bed and started to sketch the contestants. Trying to capture their look and personality quickly since they would only flash to them when they were considering the bankers offer. It made for a great, quick challenge and study of faces. I might have to do this more often.

I finished this little quilt up a few weeks ago. It is about 24"x 24" , I hand painted it with dyes , it was inspired by a photo I took of an Agave Succulent. I know it looks abstract but I like that about it. It is bright and cheery, I embellished the background with crystals and I did alot of thread painting. It was a great smaller project, in a new medium for me. I like the bright, bold colors of dyes, don't know if I like the fuss.

No matter how fleeting our encounter, how brief or long our journey together, we all leave footprints. It reminded me of the day a Gromans Chinese theater, looking at the impressions of the famous actors hands and feet prints. These are like the impressions we leave on the hearts of those we love and touch. I am sad, and I will miss you, you reminded me to be an encourager and a motivator always. And although we didn't agree on everything we had a passion for our gift and we shared it. You touched my life.
