Brinn's hurricane map reminded me of CZT Michele Beauchamp's signature tangle - Spiral. Can you see where I'm going with this story?
I looked at Brinn's photo and just saw Michele's name written all over it - so to speak. As I laughed, I commented on Brinn's facebook, "only a CZT would see coolness in a massive history-making storm . . . I'd love to see what Michele Beauchamp would draw with this! Challenge on, Michele!" Well, Michele saw my challenge and responded, "Alice, that is a storm of a challenge!" To which I responded, "Yes, but you are the lady for the job!"
And so right I was! I received a lovely package in the mail today! Inside was a wonderful card from Michele with her artwork on the front. I love her spirals! I've tried drawing them a few times, but never really do them justice.
And of course, I saved the cool stamp from Australia! Michele sent me another package awhile back - a beautiful piece of her artwork - and I saved that stamp as well.
And inside the card was this beautiful tile - Michele's answer to my challenge. Her answer to the challenge of Hurricane Sandy. Michele's interpretation of Brinn's weather shot. Like I said, it had Michele's name written all over it. So to speak. Yes, Michele was up for the challenge (what a great sport!) And she gifted me with her tile :D that's one happy smile you see right there! Challenge issued. Challenge accepted. Challenge answered. Thank you, Michele! Please take a few minutes and go check out Michele's work at Shelly Beauch!
