“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down...build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence...help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln
Welcome friends to Friday. The Dirt Road Team is growing and I will be featuring two artist each week. Today I have amazing artists that do very different work. One works with palm frond and the other a pencil, plus they live in two very different places in the world. First lets go to Florida and visit Janet from Into the Trees. Her very colorful work is done on recycled palm frond wood. This self taught native of Florida has been painting on palm frond for over 10 years. Love the chef mask myself. If you find something you love please convo her for the shipping rates, her pieces are large (4 to 5 feet long). Check out her other shop on Etsy called Sweet Lucies. Then lets go across the world and visit Sheonal from the Sheonal Hamilton Grant shop. Using just pencils (like 108) you will find life like drawings. She has capture the animals she draws so well that you can see them running across a field. Sheonal born in Scotland, and now lives in Belgium with her family. She worked with horses for ten years, grooming and riding them. Half of that time she worked with an Olympic gold medalist in Germany. Now she is raising her children and working with her pencils. Please visit her web site and her blog. Enjoy your visit today with these great artist.

There hasn't been much said about the military mom. Yet no wars could ever have been won without her! A military mom is a teacher of independence, perserverance, discipline and integrity, possesses a great sense of humor and can make of any house, a home. She is a woman of quiet strength who has shaped the hearts of our Bravest Heroes and taught them to value peace above all else. The military mom is unshakable in love for her country. That is how she is able to let go of her most precious treasure. A son or daughter. We proudly salute and thank the "Military Mom".
