You know how it is when you come upon an illustrator that you just have to find out who they were.  Well, that was the case with Kay Nielsen.  I had no clue who he was and my youngest sister mentioned him being a fabulous illustrator, so that is when I decided to do a search and I came up with the website: http://nielsen.artpassions.net/   Hope this link is enjoyable to you as much as it was to me.   ENJOY!!!

WAIT....how did I miss your previous post my dear one? I know I was away from the computer yesterday, but I am so happy to have seen your comment for I thought you had been away for a while! THANK YOU FOR LEAVING A COMMENT DEAR HEART! Oh how I loved your words. They reminded me of the fact that we have NO IDEA what wonderful joys we have awaiting us. Like nothing here on earth, like nothing we are acquainted with awaits glories of God's beauty and love, IN FULL MEASURE! And to think that we will no longer need to hang on to hope and faith, for everything will be complete. Yikes, I just got a chill of joy.

SENDING YOU FOND REGARDS and I am slowly getting to your book dear one. I have had so many orders to fill!!! LOVE TO YOU, Anita

Hi Teresa! I definitely remember you from the Doll Group! Ohh how much I love Medieval Art!! It is so rich and full of stories to tell by just looking ;) Thanks for sharing!!

By the way about my Pinterest post, I will be preparing a good post to continue with Part II. It will definitely cover all of the aspects you asked about and to top it off I will provide a few tips on how to find who the 'possible owner' of pictures downloaded in the past ;) Don't worry, there is always ways. I am very glad the post was useful for you :) Thanks for stopping by! xox

I have been a fan for several years now and had to own a book of illustrations! The 12 Dancing Princesses has to be my favorite story. Thanks for posting!

THANK YOU FOR VISITING ME. I so appreciate people stopping by to visit me. How are YOU? I still have some loose end to tie up with report cards though I got them all done, I still need to do some supplementary testing to get a better reading score for some individuals. I have to fit that in SOMEWHERE today!!! LOVE TO YOU TERESA! Anita

Vicki said...

Good morning dear friend!

Thank you for coming to help me get back on my horse! teeheeee

Yes, it has been a crazy several weeks of school and I could almost say it has sapped my creative juices. THANK YOU for coming to visit me. I am convinced that there are souls like you and a handful of others that will come to post a comment no matter what I feel about my post. This one was recycled ideas, average photos, but nonetheless, how I feel. Maybe that what writing is like, having moments where it just isn't stellar, but you keep on shining to whatever sheen you have going for you. I WILL TRY UNTIL I GET IT RIGHT! Have a great day! Anita

I have the image of the Cinderella on a greeting card up on my inspiration board, but I haven't seen the other art work by this fantastic artist. Thanks for the link to his site. I will check it out. He's amazing!

And here I have enough trouble drawing even a stick figure. :p

I've always wanted to be able to draw and paint.
