"Carys" Especially For Wongaling News

Carys being her usual adorable self!

Not so long ago I held a watercolour workshop on how to paint dogs in a loose style.  To start the session and to open emotional channels with the artists attending, a gorgeous puppy called Carys came to the introduction section of the day. Just for a few minutes and the welcome she recieved was terrific.

The day followed with many fantastic paintings and a great time was had by all. I later shared a photograph of Carys on my blog.

I was thrilled this morning to read a really moving email from Queensland, Australia letting me know that the image of  this very sweet character helped cheer up the community there following the devastation by a cyclone 5 , "Yaris".

As a screensaver this wonderful dog has brought smiles to people so far away and little known to me at the time.

"I just wanted to tell you that the photo you posted has travelled across the world and brought so much joy and laughter to many people who have been struggling."

It struck me  today how we never know just how magical sharing a few memories online can be. And  to make things even more interesting I have not had time on post on my blog for a while. Each time I have recieved fabulous art news  which I would normally share here I found I had  priorities which kept me very much off my computer. To the point I almost felt like giving up my blog altogether.

However I constantly read wonderful messages from all over the world letting me know my posts are often not only enjoyed but looked forward to.

So Sue,thank you so much for getting in touch with me. I hope this wonderful new photo will become a favourite screensaver too. And I hope this post is a wonderful surprise as it is aimed directly at you and your colleagues,

Huge hugs and smiles from

Jean
