A little tribute 12 of 29 faces

My post today is more positive. I decided to just think of my friend with all the good things she enjoyed. I don't want to think  of what she couldn't do or the years of friendship that we won't have.
So I will celebrate her life.

She loved warm and hot days, not cold. She moved to Los Angeles based just on the weather :o)
She loved black shoes, the color red, and  all kinds of fruit. She loved wearing mascara and perfume and french braids. She loved to walk by the beach, flowers and shells. She liked pop music and song birds, she hated cigarettes. She loved flavored coffee creamer. She liked cushy pillows and fancy comforters. She hated December and January and insisted in wearing short skirts just to spite the weather. :o)   In her mind it was always summer.
She was very strong minded, determined and independent.

I made a folk painting. It is not finished but that's all for today.

And my daughter is way ahead of me! She made 3 faces today! I just love how easy it is for her to make emotions on her characters... These are her 12th, 13th, and 14th faces:
