I love elephants. Last week my granddaughter Kiesha Baker sent me a beautiful hand colored framed zentangle elephant picture, with the wording "Life Is Beautiful." I couldn't agree more, and I will enjoy seeing her artwork every day. Kiesha is the mother of two precious boys and is a doula with Dallas Birth Doulas, so she helps families welcome their little miracles into this beautiful world.
Speaking of elephants, I recently purchased a hand-dyed silk stitched elephant by quilt artist Patricia Anderson Turner from Florida. Patricia is an award-winning artist who usually makes quilts which tell a story or offer a social commentary.
