I have heard it said that true art is something you never get tired of looking at. I have every reason to believe that will be the case with my birthday gift:
The artist, Pat Huber, is a dear friend of our family from my growing up years. She saw a photo of Annike playing on the beach, and asked if she could paint it. What a gift it turned out to be! My favorite part is the movement in the painting and the way the light catches on Annike's hair blowing in the wind. Even though I can't see her face, there is no mistaking the child pictured. Thank you, Christian and Mom, for finding this jewel for me! Thank you, Pat, for seeing the artistic beauty in my daughter!
