Dreams Coming True...

Once upon a time there was a little girl who loved to draw. She sketched and sketched, and sketched some more. Her teachers told her that she had artistic talent and that she should always continue to develop that talent. She even earned a Congressional Award.
She grew up and went to art school. She loved art school and smiled and hummed as she practiced night and day. However, along came a terrible dragon who swooped down from a cumulonimbus cloud in the sky! It gobbled up her school house in just one gulp! She ran away and hid for many years.
Then along came a prince in a white lab coat. He scooped up the girl and took her, far away, to live in his castle. Determined to make all of her dreams come true, the prince gave her all the art supplies she needed to make colorful, joyful art. He cut, sanded, varnished and re-sanded boards that she could use to stretch watercolor paper and paint on.
He pulled a rainbow out of the sky and placed it in a box just for her.
She unpacked her art supplies, arranged them happily about her and smiled brightly. She began to water the colors in the box and they began to blossom into a grand garden full of flowers, birds and butterflies. The garden was alive with happy sounds. She imagined a billion things that she would paint. There would always be color in their home and they would always live happily ever after; making one-another's dreams come true.


  1. I can't wait to see one of those paintings. I think the first one should have a romantic theme!

  2. I am so glad that guy in the lab coat came along. I am still waiting for a photo of a painting, tho.
