The dragonfly "ride" above is dedicated to my friend Suki - who just lost her mom. Suki named their farm "Dragonfly Pond Farm" so this slightly frivolous drawing goes to Suki - in memory of her mom.
This second drawing goes to the wonderful Debra Kay - who loves her snakes - and who also lost someone she loved this week, her Uncle John. Deb has taken care of, been a friend to John for many years, and moved back to Oklahoma to take care of him in his final years.
So why a drawing of elephants? Firstly, I love the beasts, love their social set up and just love their looks. Elephants mourn their departed friends as we do...
And an elephant never forgets - right?
So never forget your loved ones this season - go and give someone a hug.
Oops - just noticed that elephants leg is in the wrong place - ah well, whats a drawing for if not to do over.
