I would also like to thank my mom for not killing me when the budding artist inside decided to draw purple polka dots on my newly painted lavender bedroom walls. It was a lovely combination if I do say so myself. Too bad back in those days the washable markers had not been invented! I think my mom may have had something to do about that…I also give her thanks for being the first to display my artwork, even the “Orange Dead Cow”. Sorry folks, that one won’t be showing up in my gallery…hahaha!
