She was always looking in the distance - Crescendoh

She was always looking in the distance, never looking at what was in front of her.
She sees it now, with all its flaws and its beauty.
She sees love
~ Heather Foust~ 

She knows.....

I hope you all had a chance to go visit Crescendoh this week. If you haven't please visit I am guest curator.

Beth Niquette said...

Hello, Heather! I have featured your blog and artwork in this week's FATuesday Artist Spotlight.

I have enjoyed reading your charming blog and seeing your inspiring work. Thank you!

Meliss said...

Hey Heather

I noticed a comment you made on Suzi Blu's blog talking about living in PA. Me too. We were worried about the trees during the hurricane too - they're so lovely, but scary during storms (speaking of that, if you don't mind cursing, my hubby and I did a really funny puppet show about the hurricane - see my blog for the link). I hope all is well with you and that you're not still without power. There were still a lot of people without power (4,000 in Lancaster County where we live.)

Anyways, LOVE the art! Loved the article! We've got some stuff in common besides living in beautiful PA, I had my daughter young and I also always wanted to MAKE ART! It's so wonderful....ahhhh. I bet we have more.

Been great meeting you.
