What a treat yesterday when my friend Susan Blanchard and I visited the marvelous watermedia artist and friend Ruby Allen in her studio.  Ruby was a gracious host to be so generous with her time.  What an inspiration!

Much to my surprise, when we went to lunch, what should we discover at the entrance to the Hope Village Tea Room in Friendswood, TX?  MY COW!  So many years ago, I painted dog portraits onto this cow for a Houston fundraiser and it was great fun to see it once again!
