To The Sweetest Sarah I Know

Shra Froz Princess


Here at Villa Verde we’re celebrating our sweet Sarah this week, the only living member of my family I address by her actual name in this forum. in the Pacific Northwest where she’s a featured artist among several Seaside, Oregon establishments, she’s known as blossoming artist Sarah Louise. Her distinctive, infectious joie de vivre inspires and lifts me from gloomy moments more often than I like to admit.

Not only so, fellow starving artists, she and Joseph generously gift our household with the joy of their presence, and with their magical artistry. shra jos pool

What I admire most about Sarah is how makes time to walk with me, talk with me. And to help keep me going while she’s away she gave me a Fitbit!

In her generous spirit I am sharing two of their works, certain What’s Next visitors will share the wonder.

    • Thank you, Diane. Like minds, eh 🙂 Sarah sent that to me on a dark day. It’s so “Sarah,” the day got bright immediately. She’s just like that.
