My two year old potted pointsettia has morphed from a show-offy floozie to a prim ballerina. I have fed her nothing but health food, no fat, which is probably why. Both her incarnations have been lovely, but another reduction in size next year will qualify her for a part in an opera with a very sad ending.
I took a lesson from Jean Seley and turned this painting into a card. I like it! Have always liked cards, but the practice of sending them seems to have fallen away. After all these years I'm finally "an old fashioned girl".
