In the PIF meme, (you can read about it on Rose's blog, link above) the idea was for me to then pass on something to someone else. I pondered for a month or so and decided to finish my New York sketchbook, which was a gift from Regina Burchett, and give it back to her. I didn't finish it until this summer and then it was another month or so before I finally sent it off to Regina. She is such a generous person, always donating her art to great causes and finding and sending special gifts to her friends and family. She has been a volunteer with Hospice and other charities, too. It was the least I could do to send her sketchbook back filled with memories. Most of the sketches in the book, you have seen here on my blog as part of the Scavenger Hunts.
So if you all have the inclination to pay it forward, go for it. You don't have to tell us about it, just pay it forward.
