So far, through the sale of the Armadillo Limited Edition Prints, we have raised $5,326.92 for the Gogos, the orphans and Possible Dreams International - Dr. Maithri's Swaziland Project. Thank you, thank you from the very heart of me. To every single one of you who have reached out with such caring generosity from all over the globe to help build that bridge, I say ngiyabonga. You are all, every one of you, wonderful beyond words. Seriously. xxxx Tessa
Marguerite K, you are truly an earth angel. Time and again you have reached out and touched the hearts of the people of this little nation. Bless you. September 2010: Yet again this amazing lady has helped our Gogos and much of the accolade must to go to her for the fact that we have now reached the $5,000 mark...and still growing! Special grateful hugs to you Marguerite - thank you for your gentle grace.
Many thanks, too, to Caroline (Caroline's Studio) for her contribution to PDI. Dr. M and the Gogos join me in saying a very sincere siyabonga.

Lola is a smart lady - another beautiful work of art, Tessa!
Aah, the colours! Making me homesick for Africa! And a daily nap under a palm tree - what an ideal suggestion! I wish I could grow palm trees here, but last night we had -12 °C...
It's cold here in Paris too, but your wonderful painting warms me up:)
lovely one, really nice work! very colourful to! I like it!
I'm all over this! It's so true, we should nap more. I really love your bold colors.
This sounds like a perfect recipe for bliss.......
If only I could take such a nap!
I have been implementing "6-Second Stress Relief" -- put on a sparkling smile, take a deep breath through your feet, relax your shoulders, face and tongue, and give yourself an affirmation, like, "things are going to turn out all right!" It sort of works.
Fantastic illustration! I love the colors and composition and simplicity. And thanks for the great comments your left for my illustration on resolve. Means a lot!
i love lola.
SO glad to see you back tessa dear :)
I'd love to sit under a palm tree right now..
I really like the way you use colors!

Woot Woot... Glad your back.
Now where can I find a palm tree?

I totally agree with Lola! Much wisdom are in these words. This is just more of your fantastic work! Are you thinking of doing a story book? Your pictures speak so loud and clear! This is simply beautiful!
I like that idea. Wonderful use of color! I really get a sense of the warmth and relaxation.
Really vibrant colours. We both seem to like that approach.
Sorry I have been silent for so long - was away on the west coast for a family wedding.
Positively Perfect and Pretty :)

mmmm yes- I want to go there- sit beside her and snooze...warmth of the day warmth of the ample colourful woman - mmmmm yes...
Sage advice from Lola indeed and well illustrated by your colorful painting. I love how your blog reveals the story behind the image. Today it is raining ice, our trees are bare and I feel like hibernating. Happy Creative New Year!
I know people that swear by a 10-20 power nap every afternoon and apparently it works...not sure it means they actually sleep though!!
Stunning work! Love your colors.
Lola is absolutely right!
Gorgeous picture, Tessa!

Whatever Lola says, I do. Now if I could only find a palm....
