A quick little tribute to Elizabeth Taylor. I always loved her - especially when she was a little girl in National Velvet. I was in my horse back riding phase and she had brown hair too... LOVE. Watercolor really doesn't do her beauty justice, does it? She has one of those faces that was just meant to be captured by the realism of photography. Its times like these (unforeseeable deaths of icons) that I am envious of bloggers who post photographs. Having to constantly draw my blog content slows me down! Ok now I sound a little bit like that 30 Rock episode when they pre-record a charity benefit show on the off chance that another disaster strikes so that they will be the first to have coverage of the event... isn't it tragic, the thing that happened, to the people... it happened to...
