My Day was Made - Meeting One of My Favorite Artists

Oh my gosh!  Elsa Mora! I went to the National Gallery the other day to hear Elsa Mora, the artist, lecture. I was not disappointed that I did.

I have loved her work for years. She is highly skilled in many media, but paper cutting is her specialty. Be still my heart.  A paper cutter giving a lecture!

She is so down-to-earth and humble. I was so touched to hear her speak about her life.  My eyes were teary through a lot of the lecture, although I think a lot of that was from just being so happy to be there.

I comment on her blog under the name "Snippety Gibbet."  That name is just odd enough, that she recognized it when I told her who I was.  My day was made.
