I sat down with TC last night and we had a long talk. She said she considered retiring and that she knows she is becoming a bit fragile. But in her heart, she needed to continue to visit artists. She just LOVES having her portrait done! I told her I feared her breaking but she told me it was ok, that even if that did happen, she would live on as a celebrity. I realized then she was right. But I told her if ever she decided to retire, that my door was always open!
This morning when I was at the bus stop waiting I noticed someone had left an inspirational rock. It was placed there by an anonymous person with a message to spread. When I saw it, I smiled, and I thought about my conversation with TC. Her photo here with the rock really explains this little chick, I think.
I packaged the crew up, in bubble wrap, and placed them in their traveling box. Off to the post office today, and they are on their way to the next artist.
I did promise TC I would finish her portrait in the Coleus plant. When it's done I will post it.
