With Autumn nipping at my heels, I traveled 45 minutes to have lunch with my lovely friend Betsy. She is always fun to be with, no matter what. I admire her strength, outlook, beauty (in and out) and most of all her sense of playful fun. Laughing and finding joy in her company is a gift I am very lucky to have. When I returned from lunch today, I sat down and painted this while I recapped our lunchtime conversation.
