Meet Lauren! That's Lauren M. Hughes to be exact. She's a writer, blogger and now a proud owner of a freshly water colored "from the desk of" portrait courtesy of moi. The artwork is now displayed on her blog header so go take a look! Lauren and I worked together to create an illustration that captures her in the details - from the little bulldog (shes a UGA grad) to her favorite books stacked on the desk. And if you check out her blog - a thoughtful collection of essays - you'll see just how beautifully she writes about the details that make life interesting. ps. thanks for all your amazing replies to my breakfast post, i had no idea my audience was full of such gourmands. perhaps we will have to discuss food much more often!
