Animal Wednesday - Rememberance

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.

Oh Auntie Mim, this is such a sweet drawing of the dragonfly. Just today I found a lovely dragonfly necklace Mom owned. I know she is now flying free like a dragonfly, testing her wings. Sorry to hear that Debra Kay's uncle also died this week. Will go to her blog. I love elephants too. Oh PS can I post your dragonfly picture on my next blog post?

Of course you can Suki - I'll leave a post for you also.
