Budding Artist...Bethany Runyan



Aren't these beautiful? 

My very talented niece, Bethany Runyan, did them.  I'm hoping she'll study art when she goes to college.  I should have scanned more of them when she visited us in May.  She's amazing!

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

This will be my last post until September.  We're taking a little trip and when we get back I'm going to focus on querying the five manuscripts I revised in June.   (fingers, toes and eyes crossed)

I'll still be lurking around blogland, reading your posts.  :) 

Have a wonderful rest of the month....

  6. Be sure to tell Bethany that Odie in NC thinks her drawings are awesome and I really mean that. She has real talent and it needs to be used. Have fun on your trip and pop back when you can. I will be busy soon with my new adventure in education but will try to keep track of my precious blog family as often as time permits. Have a great weekend.

  12. Hi Sharon!! I love to draw, I (humbly saying) have the gift, but when I was a teenager I let "what's profitable" speak louder, and so I didn't do arts, but business college.
    So if your niece ever go through that, please tell her this story : ) I hope she goes for arts, she really has the gift!
    Oh and don't ever make me start on querying, ugh...
