Here is a 4x6 original watercolor...it is the newest of my "Bruised and Broken Series"...this is my very first painting I did after Anjelina was assaulted...I saw some people look at her sometimes like she put herself in a dangerous enviornment.



...and last one is an ACEO original watercolor with a Hiaku I wrote!

It's Time To Smile Again!

Hello to all my sweet friends! I would like to give you all an update on my daughter Anjelina. As many of you know she was brutally attacked almost two months ago by a monster who will be charged with attempted murder. However, that is all I am going to say about him because he doesn't deserve my time....Anjelina is doing absolutely wonderful and she is so thankful to be alive to smell the flowers...enjoy the warm sun...have tea with me on the deck....lol....I could go on and on.

We both totally appreciate all the love, light, and prayers from everyone! Thank you to all of you who kept the prayers going by mentioning it on their blogs and lighting candles...I believe wholeheartedly that all of those prayers helped her to heal so quickly....she was in  the hospital for only six days....and that included 3 days in Intensive Care!

So....I painted a canvas for Anjelina about the power of prayer and wrote her this note on a piece of parchment paper...rolled it up like a small scroll and placed it the back of the canvas!

Dear Anjelina,

On July 7, 2011 your life changed forever but not in the way that most would believe. You didn't allow the monsters hand hold you down...you didn't allow the fear to immobolize you....no not my daughter...you were brave and bold and soon you rose above your circumstances. You found your inner "Women Warrior" and have the battle scars to prove it. You found your courage and now my daughter it is yours for life!

With all my love...Mom

I debated whether to show you what I wrote but so many of you were here with me from the beginning and I felt that you should know.

Now here is the surprize....I made a second 6x6 canvas painting and I am going to give all of you a chance to win it! Anyone can enter...this is for all of you that wrote on my blog....prayed silently...passed the word that Anjelina needed help...this is for anyone who has ever prayed for themselves or someone they loved...this is for anyone who believes in the power of prayer! Please just leave a comment and your name will go in the hat!




Good Luck....Anjelina will do the drawing on September 7th. Oh...I almost forgot...the words I choose for the letter to Anj were inspired by one of my favorite books..."WOMENS BOOK OF POSITIVE QUOTES"!
