Morning Coffee

A new portrait drawing, playing with color and textures. It was done after an old picture of Supermodel Kate Moss, who continues to rock the world of glam ads and fashion with her nonchaöante air and cool sense of style.

In truth, if i was a smoker, i'd probably be chain-smoking now, for i'm so frustrated and nervous, that my internet still doesn't work and i'm so out of my usual wye of communication. Not to think of the giveaway i started, and was then so not able to promote ...

But - let's be grateful for the little things, right? For the first signs of spring here in cold germany, for little flowers showing their colorful heads, for sunshine beaming into my window yesterday, for lovely friends visiting -  and for your patient support.

You can still enter my giveaway and win YOUR OWN PORTRAIT here. I'm delighted to read, what makes you sparkle - and send you some extra brightness for the rest of your week!

    I am late in coming to visit you because we have had a major snow storm. Travel for me has been really bad, and this morning I have to shovel all the snow out of my parking area. This has truly been the worse winter in many years, and I am so glad to hear that Germany is seeing a little pop of spring!
