Frog Painting, In Memory Of My Friend

When I was a little girl, my best friend (who lived across the street) was hit by a car and killed instantly. Every day thereafter, when I came home from school, I sat out back by the edge of our pond. While my heart grieved, I listened to nature sing it's song, as if just to me.

There was this frog, this one little frog who appeared every day. Every time I spoke, he answered. I found him so amusing and in a way comforting. God used one of His little creatures to help me find my smile again.

My painting, "Little Blue Frog" will always remain dear to my heart as it reminds me not to miss the unexpected surprises to be found in nature.
