I'm Featured in Lesley Harrison's Blog!

I love Lesley Harrison's art work! I'm sure you are familiar with her pastels. She paints the most beautiful horses and wolves you have ever seen! Then there are the dogs and cats - and oh, I can't forget the birds and wild animals and did I say wolves? Well she is just fantastic.

She has been a huge inspiration to me and part of the reason I decided to try pastels. I keep her book, Painting Animals that Touch the Heart , close at hand so that when I run into problems or need inspiration it is all there at my fingertips. One of these days I hope to be able to take a workshop with her - WOW - what a dream that would be!

Anyway, I've been following her blog and recently she has started featuring a guest artist. Guess what? She has featured ME this week! I'm so proud. Thank you Lesley! It is really an honor to be recognized by you on your blog - I truly appreciate it!

Please take a few minutes to check out Lesley's website and her blog - you will thoroughly enjoy them both.

Congratulations Karen! Although I would not have discovered Leslie without visiting your blog on a regular basis.

I'm no "Leslie" but you were also listed of favorite animal artists in my post a couple of days ago!

Maybe Leslie found you through me. NOT! Hugs to you and congratulations again!
