Bird on Her Head

I woke up to a wonderful suprise this morning.

My very talented blogging friend, Joanna, created a wonderful whimsical painting for me incorporating her ideas on what my Average Life means to me.  I just told her the things that I loved and gave her complete carte blanche.

Today she finished, I was utterly thrilled and don't be surprised if you find this eventually becoming a permanent fixture on my blog.



If you get a chance, check out Joanna.  She is a textile and mixed media artist who left the States seven years ago to pursue her dream of being an artist in Athens, Greece.  In fact, she just had a major exhibition there.  Go Joanna Go!!! Anyway I adore her and her talent and she is completely lovely.

You can find her and her talented self here:
