Lanterns seem to be showing up in a lot of my paintings lately. I took several pictures in Charleston, and this painting below was from one of them. Maybe it's because the Bible talks about lanterns and shinning a light into the world. Something just draws me to them when I see one. (this background was inspired by Pam Carriker)

Even my journal page has a lantern...above the door to the chapel. There's just something about them...
Speaking of a light...this little guy makes my day brighter each time I see him. I just love this adorable picture. He was so curious about my camera his head just kept getting closer and closer until...

and that's his finger trying to grab the camera. I guess he wanted to take a self picture. Here's my other favorite from the same day. I was trying to get a shot of him playing in his new bouncing chair, but...

he stopped and looked right at me! He's such a blessing...and I can't wait for grandson #2 coming soon!!
