It's always a joy when art comes into your life! Just before leaving on vacation, I got a surprise in the mail - a beautiful original painting by Kim Gledhill. I met Kim through the 29-Day Giving Challenge. Not only is Kim talented, she's thoughtful and generous too, and I will smile everytime I glimpse her painting, which has found a home in my dining room.
My other recent art acquisition is this exquisite necklace made by fellow Arts in RI member Wendy Thatcher. I love the way she uses natural materials and combines colors in such a beautiful way. Look at the texture of these beads, with the small beads adding just the right hint of sparkle. Gorgeous!
