PINK

Inspiration Avenue theme for this week: PINK
Immediately I thought of Terri Tharpe aka "Ninnie". She's a good friend of mine, and has been since I started blogging several years ago. She is a creator extraordinaire. She's a motorcycle enthusiast, a grandmother,a photographer,and a tattoo designer. Recently she designed a tat that her SIL tatted on her and her daughters. Earlier this year Ninnie was diagnosed with breast cancer. She blogs about it at Ninnies journey through breast cancer. She kindly told me I could draw this portrait of her from a photo on her blog. I've never actually met Ninnie but I know her heart.  Praying this attempt to honor her is appropriate.
Sending love to her this day and to all who are having this devastating experience.
Let's find a cure!
