A dreary day -- brightened by friends

Perhaps it was the winter, rain, sleet and impossibly gray (Copics Warm Gray W-02!) sky, but when I posted earlier -- feeling blue (Copics B02) -- friends have come to the rescue. Thank you.

I wrote of my new friend, Jenn (http://justaddwatersilly.blogspot.com) who makes my day sunny with her reparte and beautiful sketches of flowers.  Through her, I found Flickr and DailyPaintworks, where you can have sent to your e-mail daily postings of the works of artists around the world -- gorgeous, uplifting, art.

Through a combination of all of the above, I found a photographer whose pictures of flowers simply make my heart sing when the gardens here are as stark as the sky.  Magda Indigo ... of the U.K. ... what more can I say, but amazing?! 

She sent me a lovely response to a comment I made on her blog, and with it, attached a photograph of a stunning flower. I am speechless in God's beauty, and in Magda's specialty in capturing it so. 

She's graciously given me permission to share this on my blog, with attribution which follows. I do so, hoping it brings you as much joy as it did me. Blessings to you too, Magda!

The skies have brightened and the sunset is glorious ... my mood has too. I think I'm a YR, but I'm not sure of the shade. 
Speaking of colors, you all know about my love of Copics. They're sponsoring a HUGE giveaway if you "Like" their fan parade on Facebook.  Here is the promotional image. If you're a Facebooker, do it, comment/share.  If you win, I'll be all shades of YG06.
