Happy Birthday!

OK, she's going to kill me for posting these pics here but I just had to write a special Happy Birthday note.

Truly I've been trying to summon the right words for this very special lady and find myself speechless. The only words that keep resounding in my mind are compassionate, loving, healing, strong willed, and uniquely gifted, talented spirit.

This world (and my world) is infinitely better for you being here.

Jugetes


Jugetes
These are toys I had as a kid in Mexico. The object is to hold the stick part and swing the barrel part to land onto the stick. If you were good at it, you could do it in one swing, if you weren't, you'd have sore knuckles for days! My knuckles were usually bruised.

I'm not sure what to call this one, I really love the textures and earthy colors in the more traditional Mexican ceramics. It was fun pulling out the hints of colors I saw. I have been wanting to paint this tri-footed pot but could never quite figure out how to compose it, there's more of this one in the works.
