Apologies for the print being small again, as Acerules is away again on a history excursion. 

I’d like to introduce to you the work of a professional artist in Canada. Her name is Karen Schlick. My impression is that her original work has a spiritual quality. 

She works, and is accomplished in: painting, drawing, pottery, mixed media, sculpture, relief and other. I showed you one of her paintings on my Christmas 2016 presents thread. She sent it all the way to my home in Australia.

Here are two reliefs she currently has for sale, and the last one there,  I lifted from her website. Karen does take commissions, tell her what you need. Framing is extra charge, the masks can be sent unframed.

The painting she sent me two Christmases ago:

It is a picture of the soul of a wonderful mutual friend that passed away. Karen was inspired by a song,  “Ballerina” by Van Morrison. 

 Perhaps you have a favourite song you’d like her to depict. 

I am not getting paid or receive anything for this post. I just wanted to show my talented friend’s work to the world.

Cath, thank you for sharing this talented artist’s works! I love the painting she did for you! Blessings, my friend!

Welcome back, Pam. The painting is better in real life, too.

Oh, Hello! Thank you so much for coming by my blog and leaving such a nice comment. I've been looking down your posts and couldn't help but stop and read about your beloved Jack Russell. I know you must be heartbroken. We had a Jack many moons ago and they are wonderful dogs, tough and devoted. The stories you shared both broke my heart but made me smile, too -- our Jack was a runner to the max.

Every time we bid farewell to our four legged family, I think the heart breaks a bit, a break that never fully heals. But in sharing their story, that is a wonderful step to the healing and loss.

I am a new follower.

Welcome Jeannie and thanks for following!

We are walking the other Jack Russell daily to alleviate his loneliness with older dog gone. He gets so excited before a walk now. Maybe because he gets a tidbit if I buy food!

I am so glad you two met! Cath and Jeanie, you both are sweet and interesting ladies!

I’m sure Jeannie is, and I know you are sweet, Pam, but Margo, you can stop laughing now.
