For my friend's 50th birthday!


This was painted for my friend, JoAnn. She turns the big 5-0 this next weekend! I can't believe we're this age 'already'! We've been friends since the 7th grade. What is that? 38 years? OMG!
She's a wonderful person and I feel blessed to have a friend like her. God never sent sisters my way, but he made sure I was surrounded by the most supportive and loving girlfriends, that's for sure!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOANN!

Darla, she will love this artwork, what a lucky girl she is - the message is so appropriate for your long loving friendship.

I have to go and spend some time in your Etsy shop now, I have a feeling I might just have to buy one of your arworks as I love your style - cheers Val
