My Friend Heather

(1) likes to take classes taught by rockstars such as Stephanie Lee with me, and not just because she likes to set things on fire:

(2)  brings me the latest Nick and Nora pyjamas from Target when we get together to do art workshops and retreats together.  These ones are called "Veggie Bunnies", for obvious reasons:

(3) makes me laugh by trying on silly masks in Target:

(4) made this FABULOUS travelling art journal kit in a lunch box (and then swiped back the bottle of gesso):

(5) bought this beautiful pair of earrings made by Ms. Stephanie Lee:

(6)  doesn't always like to have her picture taken:

(7) introduced me to these two lovely ladies, Anne and Bette:

(8) created this cool moonscape on her metal book cover:

(9) is my BFF:
(10) is married to a lovely man named Andy O'Brien, who drove an hour each way to take us out to dinner at O'Malley's Pub last Saturday night (probably not too much of a hardship, since it gave him an excuse to take his shiny new Corvette out for a spin) and who springs from good Irish stock, in case you were thinking maybe this blog post didn't have any connection to St. Patrick's Day.   :)

Speaking of shamrocks, another thing I learned at the ArtBLISS workshops last week is that 4 leaf clovers grow in bunches, so if you find one, keep looking around nearby, there will be more.  (Sharon, is that why Bobby finds so many??)

I <3 Heather. What a nice post! Andy got a Vette? A 1968, black, with red leather interior?

You are so lucky to have a good friend like this! I was delighted to meet you both. So fun!
Enjoy the day!

Cynthia, sorry to see what a horrible fire hitting so close to home. I agree, so many terrible things going on right now around the world.
What a sweet tribute to Heather...loved this post! I bet she was flattered and her soul warmed when she saw all that you captured here. Love that pajama shot of you! :-)

We haven't met but I found your blog via your comments on the yahoo group for Artbliss. I didn't get to go this time but I see you met other members of our "tribe" Anne and Bette, and of course are BFF's with Heather another "member". Will you be going to Art and Soul in Hampton?
