Back when my Gary passed away, my friend Kerri Possen Stabile offered to help me get back into my art and I welcomed the gift she was offering but was not ready to embark on it then. Every time I saw her I was reminded that this offer still stood and when I finally felt like I wanted to abandon the sadness and tackle something new, we set a date to play together at her house. This is the result of my play time with Kerri. Those of you who know Kerri will recognize the resemblance as I basically copied her and yet our paintings are really very different. I used her colors that I would probably never have chosen and yet I love now that it's done. I know when she gets her camara fixed or a new one she will post hers as well. Of course mine is not as well done as hers, as she has the experience, but I am thrilled that we did this.

Most of all, I feel blessed, because she gave of herself and her time. Those are gifts that are treasured the most and will remain as fond memories forever. Thanks to Kerri and all my art friends for also giving me the courage to move forward and step into a future of uncertainty with courage.
