Thanks Carolyn for inviting me to share my art and techniques with your readers!

    Away from home and loved this Easter surprise. Very cheerful! Thanks. Happy Purim! I am working out of my travel studio with collage, watercolors and watercolor pencils. Met a gal here at the hotel getting ready to look at her new Art Journaling magazine. What a great exchange we had. Felt like I got to pay forward a few things that others, including you, Miriam, have shared with me. Enjoy the day. He is risen!!!!!!!!

    Carolyn could you get a message to Miriam? She needs to know this….
    The word “Easter” and most of the secular celebrations of the holiday come from pagan traditions. Anglo Saxons worshipped Eostre, the goddess of springtime and the return of the sun after the long winter. According to legend, Eostre once saved a bird whose wings had frozen during the winter by turning it into a rabbit. Because the rabbit had once been a bird, it could still lay eggs, and that rabbit became our Easter Bunny. Eggs were a symbol of fertility in part because they used to be so scarce during the winter. There are records of people giving each other decorated eggs at Easter as far back as the 11th century.
