Diane chose “Stars” as her theme this week for Mixed Media Monday and has created the most gorgeous canvas to inspire us! I am taking a different approach and sharing a canvas I painted for a lovely woman whom I am proud to call my friend (well, our friend, to be truthful!) We see each other nearly every week at market and despite the tragedies that have beleaguered her in the past year, she always has a beautiful smile and a huge hug for us (that’d be me and DH)!!

I love her dearly… she has that rare combination of beauty that shines from within and is also very lovely to look at – a glamorous Granny!! She’s in her late 60s, but you’d never believe it and she can talk to anyone on any level. Jan is a total STAR… and terribly well-spoken, hence the nickname “Posh”. 😉


The tiny face is from Third Coast RS – ideal for popping into a corner, isn’t she?!
