Here's a little painting I recently did for a friend of ours who is leaving our green shores to move back to America. Nicole from "The Poppins Blog".She is a lovely American girl who has been living and working over here as a Nanny for the past 18 months. OH, how we are going to miss that gal!! I tried to capture the essence of who she is in this . . . part adventurer, part nurturer, part whimsical, part impish. We gave it to her yesterday at her going away "do". She loved it and that made me really happy. She has always held a little piece of my heart anyways, and now she has something tangible to show for it.
