  20. Good Morning Ruthie,

    I just found your blog through the workshop of tireless artist. First of all, I have to admit that I have a love affair with Scotland. I've been there 4 times, and my favorite of all places is Glen Coe, but everything is just fantastically beautiful out there.

    I'm very impressed by your work and I think I will follow your blog for a while and see where you take me...;o)

    I'd be honored if you would visit my blog as well, and I love comments.

    Did you actually draw or scratch the images for your sister-in-law's book?

    Have a lovely weekend!

    Hugs,
    Meri
