Casual Student

My cousin had a lovely young lady-Svenni, come over as an exchange student from Germany nearly two years ago. We all got to know Svenni very well, going on holidays together and keeping in touch with her.
Svenni was the one that had to tell me "My son has broken his leg at the playground" and she did it in an ever sooo sweet way-if that's possible!
She has come back to visit us for six weeks and wanted to come and paint with me.
When Svenni came back, she gave me a great present-A German Painting book. While Svenni was here painting yesterday, I took this photo when she painted this piece out of the book.
Svenni also painted this calico bag from one of my magazines. The original artist is Tracey Sims.
Ah, I think I've got her hooked and she is very artistic and talented.
I gave her some paints, brushes and homework to play with while here. The sad news "Time Flys" and Svenni will be going home in two weeks.
It has been a pleasure getting to know Svenni and I'm grateful she has come into our lives.
Hey Svenni, When are you coming back?????

Hi Anna,
Yes, Svenni is very talented indeed. And I'm sure it must have been very inspiring for her to paint with you!
Have a nice weekend!

I thought I would pop in and see what you have been up to too! Exchange students how cool! I lived most of my lifetime my self in Berlin Germany. Svenni is most certainly hooked that flower is beaming! Lovely

Hi Anna!

Svenni sounds like a lovely sweet girl, and she is so very talented, too! And very beautiful, please tell her!

It is always interesting to see the styles of different countries and cultures. What is the traditional painting style like in Germany?

Enjoy your time with Svenni... it does fly doesn't it? Our Kerryanne will be on her way now too... I don't know where that time went to... like you say, it just flew!

Hugs! Vikki xx
