You Just Never Know

While at the library last week we noticed a young man setting up an easel to paint. Of course DD began asking him questions as soon as she saw him. He was very nice. I asked if he would be willing to paint a portrait of the girls. He said that he had just begun painting portraits, but that he would be willing to try. He gave us a business card with his web site URL so that we could look at some of his work. We didn't stay to watch him paint because I was afraid that Desheng Darling would drive him crazy with all of her questions!
When we got home we looked at his web site .You've got to look at it. His work is AMAZING!!! I mean REALLY amazing!!!!!
If I'd known that he was this good, I would have jumped at the opportunity to have the girls' portrait done!

So, PandaMom is visiting with us today, and we decided to redo my blog. Go look at the background I picked. I completely forgot about yours. :) Great minds think alike!! I love your title picture and little butterfly and flowers. I dont' know how to do that. But we did play with the title and font.
