My last postcard is from Ronelle, well worth the wait!

Well the tales and pictures of the wonderful packages that Ronelle sent to everyone was almost too much to bear all year. I knew that I was going to be last and I could hardly stand the suspense of what she might be sending. When the package arrived in my mailbox I was giggling with glee, knowing that it was here!! The beautiful painting on the envelope was amazing, making me completely baffled on what could possibly out do that. I truly loved the envelope painting so much I am going to frame that one, I love tonal papers and paint, wonderful. When I opened the package I was thrilled to see gifts sliding out, candy, paper, postcard but you all know what she sends! She writes that she painted her horses for me since she knows I had horses at one time. She mentions that she would love to sneak a few more onto the property, when she can. I remember the wonderful years we owned and raised horses, it was a magical time! So many beautiful memories with Jennifer, running the hills, exploring the mountain trails with the dogs by our sides. Enjoy this special time in your life Ronelle, may it last forever and be all you hope it to be. Thank you so much for making the end our our International Postcard exchange so memorable!

I also want to take this opportunity to thanks all the amazing artists that participated in this exchange. Each month I couldn't wait to get my postcard, to see the world through your eyes and share a minute in time with each of you. It has meant so much for me to be able to say I was a part of this group and I will cherish the time we have spent together. Also, a big hug and thank you to Ronelle and Katherine who worked together to make this happen for all of us, you are much loved !

oooh stunning sketches of horses from someone who clearly knows them well - the bones and muscles and character - and Ronelle's characteristic lovely free marks. Well worth the wait :>)

Ronelle’s knowledge and love of these beasts’ moods and movements shows in every stroke of pen or paint.

A pure delight - love every part of this postcard and envelope from Ronelle. I'd be framing it too.

Ronelle should draw and paint animals more!

As everyone has said, what a beautiful card and envelope, that Ronelle's love of her horses shines out of!

Wow, is there nothing Ronelle can't paint with fantastic flair?! Wonderful horses, captured so brilliantly.
