Sherri’s Red Fox
Hello everyone! Today I learned that my friend Sherri Matthews finally received this 8×10 painting I did for her in honor of memories she has of her dad who recently passed away. She loves foxes and the colors of Fall and it reminded her of all the times her dad used to take her and her brother out in the woods to explore when they were children. So those were the things I was thinking about as I painted it for her. (The picture will become bigger if you click on it.)
It was truly an honor to do something that meant so much to a good friend. Sherri and I met here on WordPress a few years ago. She lives in the UK with her lovely family whom she clearly loves with all of her heart. She has been a really great friend to me even though we have never gotten to meet in person…..maybe someday!! 😉
I always feel encouraged whenever I receive a message from her on Facebook. We became friends on there as well so that is how we communicate. It is great to be able to make such a meaningful connection with someone so far away. The only downside is not being able to sit down and talk over coffee or give each other hugs. However, just being able to keep in touch across the miles is a really great gift. I am so glad to have met Sherri here. She has a beautiful blog here on WordPress called A View From My Summerhouse. Here is a link to the story she wrote which inspired me to do the painting for her. https://sherrimatthewsblog.com/a-walk-in-the-woods/
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. She has many great stories, and she works hard as a writer. I am thankful she is in my friend and in my life.
Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! 🙂
(I love you, Sherri! Big hugs to you!)
