A Gift From Lori Portka

I had to show you this beautiful painting I received in surprise a few weeks back.
Lovingly made by the sweet and lovely Lori Portka.
Lori was one of the very first people I met in the blogosphere a few years back
and we connected instantly because of our colour loving, sensitive and animal loving souls.
Lori did this super awesome & huge project called "A Hundred Thank-You's"
(you can read all about it right here on her blog).
She wrote down 100 people that she felt grateful & thankful towards and
then she set out to make every single one of those people an original painting!
I was so shocked and honored when Lori told me I was one of the people she made a painting for.
This was the sweet note that accompanied the painting in the exhibition &
that was sweetly tucked into the back of the painting.
It really made me teary with gratitude towards this inspiring fellow artist I am lucky to call a friend.
I am so in love with it.  It hangs in a spot in my dining room where I get to see it every day.
It truly fills my heart with joy (Art is amazing that way, isn't it!)
and is such a beautiful reminder of the sweet & kind people out there.
Thanks my dear sweet friend....
your so awesome and your painting will be forever cherished.
XXOO the bunnies & I.
