Writing Meets Art

My 90-year-old grandmother is an artist (oil painter) and we often discuss the similarities between art and writing: hard work, grueling hours, people misunderstanding us, no guarantee of payment/publication -- as well as the benefits: entering another world of our creation, feeling free while doing so, both abandoning ourselves and finding ourselves through our work, etc.

Well, this Christmas, her art met my writing as she painted me this BEAUTIFUL rendition of a pub that's in one of my novels. Just, wow. What a treasure.
