For me from my son

My ‘secret santa’ gift this year was an unexpected pleasantness, to the point that I actually teared up a bit… I must say that I have a great support network at home, with my entire family cheering me on to the 100th portrait and beyond, which I appreciate beyond words. My oldest offspring drew my name for stockings, and his thoughtful planning renewed my faith in teendom. We are fellow bloggers, his brand new site is called Protege Fitness; his platform being fitness and nutrition. He has an exceptional ability to network and his writing talent dwarfs my own- you can follow him @joshhamiltonfit on Twitter. His will be an interesting  journey to watch.

Pictured below is part of his gift to me: it’s a mechanical pencil with a beautiful rotary feed action. The other half is a coffee cup also inscribed with my artboy68 handle. I will use them every day.

And this is my son Josh:

Having a very Merry Christmas,

    Beautiful… what a thoughtful gift. Happy Holidays! 😉

  8. Isn’t it wonderful when the people you love love what you love? Doesn’t happen often so when it does, it just feels huge. How wonderful to have a son that sees, appreciates, and shares.
