Super. Amazing. Spectacular.

Happy Friday my friends.  Are you gearing up for the new year?  As long as everyone is healthy here, we'll be having our family over tomorrow for Christmas brunch.  But...I wanted to pop in a share a card along with an amazing Christmas gift.   The card above is going to my niece, Elizabeth.  She is incredibly talented.  Over the summer, I took pictures of Ryan at his All Star tournament and asked Elizabeth if she would do an oil painting of him.  She actually saw Ryan standing on the fence and quickly came over and said, "Auntie Lynn...take one of him there!"  Without Ryan knowing, Elizabeth has been working on this over the last few months.

I love Ryan's facial expressions as he is opening it up. So cool!

Look at the pride on Ryan's face...and check out Marcel's face...what a crack up!

And here's the best one!  The artist showing off her painting!  So proud of Elizabeth's incredible talent.  And Ryan has a life long gift.   Truly amazing!

And here's a close of up the picture...click on it to see all the incredible details.


And last but not least...to show how talented Elizabeth is...look at what she painted yesterday while she was "bored"!  Beautiful!
