Beautiful post Patricia.and beautiful illustration... When I read Marija's husband's post, I was stunned and saddened. Prayers to Marija's beautiful soul and for healing to her beautiful family.....

We illustrators think alike- I drew her gorgeous home this morning too. Marija created a warm and lovely home for her dear husband and children, and you have captured the love she put into it here. This is such a sad time. She certainly brought love, joy and beauty into everything she touched.
