Holiday Happiness to all! The angel ornament was created to hang on one of the ARTISTREEs in West Virginia’s Governor’s Mansion in Charleston, WV this year. Our First Lady, Joanne Jaeger Tomblin invited artists throughout the state to contribute an ornament. These will be cataloged and retained in the Mansion’s archives to be used as decorations during future events.
Jim and Susan drove the five hours to Charleston, WV to a brunch hosted by the First Lady on Dec 11. The dawn hours with a beautiful full moon poking out from the mountains kept us inspired, and the return trip in full daylight allowed the glory of our state to regale us. Next year the invitation will be out again from the First Lady to all artists… contribute your best ornament.
