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.

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!)

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. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork. Thanks for visiting! :)

  1. Hi Patsy, I came over from the Summerhouse to tell you what a gorgeous fox that is!! No wonder she had tears in her eyes when she opened it! You are the essence of a wonderful friend.
    Merry Christmas!


  2. What a sweet and beautiful gift to give her. Love the autumn leaf colors in the painting and your fox is a stunner.

  4. What a lovely thoughtful gift. I have met Sherri in person, at the UK bloggers bash. She is as lovely in real life as she in online. 🙂


  5. What a lovely post, and image.


  6. Your painting is absolutely gorgeous, Patsy. I can only imagine how much it meant to Sherri. The three of us need to figure out Skype! 🙂 As I just mentioned in my comment to you, on my blog, you’re a special person and a treasure to many. ❤


  7. Oh Patsy, I just saw your link to this post and now I’m crying all over again just reading your beautiful post. You are so talented and an amazing artist, I am blessed beyond measure by your most beautiful painting, but more than that, by your kindness, thoughtfulness and beautiful spirit behind it, not least of all for painting it in honour of my dear dad and the walks we took together (I’m so glad you enjoyed my little story!). Dad would be blown away by your painting, he really would; it will take pride of place in my home, once I’ve found the perfect place and I’ll let you know! Thank you again, so, so much my dear friend, you are a wonderful friend to me and I love you too! I hope you can feel my hugs, because I’m sending a whole ton over to you right now! 🙂 ❤ xoxo


  8. Thanks again for the link, Sherri! I love you! 🙂 xoxo
