The Honor of Inspiring Others
Watercolor Painting of Tree Swallows © Sherri Friesman
I received an email about three weeks ago requesting permission to paint one of my Tree Swallow photos found through the blog. I was soo honored that she felt inspired that I quickly emailed her back saying, “Yes! Yes! Yes”! That is such a wonderful feeling that one picture can encourage someone into creating a masterpiece like this!! Just yesterday I received another email from Sherri stating that she “was finished with the painting”!! Wow, I am speechless with how wonderful it turned out and couldn’t wait to show this painting to everyone!!
The Reference Photo
Sherri Friesman is from London which is in South Western Ontario (Canada) and has been painting since she was a kid. I think she has some amazing painting talent and I hope with everyone’s kind comments that her husband will finally finish her webpage (and maybe start her own blog??) so we can see more of her work!
Thanks Sherri for making me smile with your wonderful work that you have done. This so reminds me of the emotions that I had while taking these photos and what was in store for these guys the following days. I am also very proud to have the privilege to show your Tree Swallows painting to the world!
