Lapsley is one of those artists that you don't know you need until she is on your playlist. Her style and arrangements captivate you instantly.

She was meant to be uploaded yesterday for International Womans Day but copyright forced me back a day... and lets be honest. In a perfect world, we wouldn't need that day because we would all be equal and supportive as a human race.

From Kwiat Designs Gratitude blog.

When I think of gratitude and kindness there is no one more deserving to Kwiat Designs then Dennis O'Connor of O'Connor Gallery in Gananoque, Ontario.

My first gallery show, My boost in confidence as an artist and the foot in the vast waters of the art world were helped by him. I owe him so much for his unwavering knowledge and help through the years.

This is a small piece of what he means to me as part of my March appreciation posts.
