Hope has done such a magnificent job in Art this year. I am really proud to report that she was a Featured Artist at her school's Art Show on May 14th. I was able to meet her Art teacher, Ms. Gabbard, when we attended and she praised Hope for working hard and vastly improving her talents. Hope drew the flamingo just for me as a Mother's Day present. I love it! I also love her self-portrait . It amazed me! Her landscapes are fun and have a folk feel to them. This really reminds me of my Grandma Rae, who is an artist and paints very similar to the way Hope did in the bottom left corner. You are such a creative artist, Hope!
