We've always heard "a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush". That was the beginning of this piece. You HAVE given us a hand in the form of your kind responses to our thank you message. At the end of this challenge, when all the artists have checked in, we'll put our hands together and join in a standing ovation for all of us who meet here every week!! Have fun. (Credits are on my blog)
NOTE TO OUR ARTISTS:
It is with immense sadness Ann and I report that our very dear friend, Marie Markham, passed away this morning after a year-long battle with illness following her surgery a year ago. Marie and I met on a pen pal site in 1999 and have communicated almost daily since then. She was the driving force in establishing our three digital art challenge blogs--Take a Word , Three Muses, and Digitalmania. Our friend, Ann Baker from the UK, joined us and we three friends who have never met managed the three blogs for over ten years. Ann and I have continued to manage them during Marie's illness. We have sorely missed her talent and wit. We know you join us in extending our deepest sympathy to Marie's family in Perth.
