Summer is Leaving -Postcard Friendship Friday #327

One of my greatest inspirations is the art of Alphonse Mucha, one of the artists who ushered in the age of Art Nouveau.  I have based a few pieces of my own artwork on his wonderful pieces.  I love the patterns he used in his borders, the graceful placement of subject, draperies, flowers and landscape.  He is one of the greatest artists of all time.  You can read more about this extraordinary man at The Artist, Alphonse Mucha.

I will be going in for surgery mid-week.  I am so grateful to friends and family, as they have chosen to gather around me to keep the house safe while I'm in the hospital, providing transportation, cooking, and watching over me as I recover.  I have been so touched by so many people. 

I know there are those of you out there who have been praying for me. I am SO grateful to God for you.  May our Mighty Creator bless you, dear ones.  Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

Dear Beth,

I hope that the surgery went well, and you're now feeling as sunny as the lady on the beautiful Mucha poster. Van harte beterschap, as the Dutch say.

Greetings from Amsterdam,
