Princeton's Umbrella


Princeton Pig was always very bright. He always carried an extra umbrella for just such an occasion.
I want to thank everyone for your very kind words and support. You have become my friends. I
look forward to coming to WW to see what everyone is up to. It really inspires me. Each of you
have been so kind and supportive and I am so very humbled by kindness. May God
bless each of you with more creativity than ever before. From the bottom of my heart
thank you for the Spotted Bunny Award. I will cherish this moment always.

I was hoping you'd get the Spotted Bunny award this month! You really are a fun artist, and it's true that you are so kind and uplifting with so many great and helpful comments. You also are quite witty! This is a fun illo, Vanessa. I also hope you can have your illo dreams come true, too!

Vanessa, I LOVE this dancing pig with all his colors and cake and joy:-) - he is a big invitation to grab an umbrella (and of course some cake) and go and swirl and twirl in the rain:-)

And also: YIPPPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am SO SO SO HAPPY and dancing around that you won the spotted bunny award. You very much, completely deserve this. I love your work - and am a big fan - it always, always takes me to that best place of playfulness, carefreeness and feeling all of seven years old again:-) You are so wonderfully talented and I wish you zillions of new ideas and huge bundles of paper and bright paints to let them fly.

I also want to thank you so much for your wonderfully supportive words - I read them and smile and they become especially like treasures in those big moments of doubt...

So thank you, thank you - and YIPPEEEE!!!!! and CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!! and MAZELTOV!!!!!

Have a beautiful, creative, celebratory day (with lots of cake:-)

PS: I LOVE your banner - it's beautiful and full of the best watercolor wednesday magic:-)

Look at that fantastic umbrella. What a sharp dressed pig he is... maybe we should "introduce" him to my lil Posey Pig, I think they would make a striking pair.

Congrats on the Spotted Bunny - very well deserved for a very inspirational artist and woman.

Have a good weekend.

Indeed, congrats on the well deserved award! :-) I think I left a message on your blog saying how much I love the art on the banner celebrating your Spotted Bunny Award, it's so beautiful and airy!
And you have a gift for colors and patterns! Just look at Princeton Pig's outfit and umbrella and his tasty cakes.
You are a fantastic and generous artist, Vanessa! :-)
