She's one happy posy, this little beauty! 

The festivities have been going on around me for over two weeks.  But today I found the perfect subject to depict the tenor of my life.  I've had the flu. And I may be finally getting over it!  I painted this today and it's indicative of how I feel.  I missed Christmas and all the celebrating from the 23rd of December until today.  Fortunately, I had painted a lot in preparation for the holidays, and wrote posts in advance, too.

Well, I'm back!  Although, I was never really gone, was I?
