Donna, thank you for liking my blog. I’m glad I checked yours out, too! These pictures are great and go with all of the stuff I’ve been writing about Georgia O’Keeffe. I’m glad you were able to go there. I sure wish I could! Maybe someday. Thanks again.

About whitefeatherfloating

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork.
