Day 29 ~ Mini Autumn Rose Bouquet

One more day… I feel like I’ve been climbing a 14er and I’m almost to the top, but I’m not sure I can make the last 14 feet…

I think I can do it, and I’m amazed…  I’m only short one painting and that’s okay.

Day 28 ~ Pure Joy

I’m having so much fun on Instagram. I find artists that encourage me and inspire me and so many wonderful people who share their own life experiences, plus my own children, who I don’t see all the time what they are doing, so posting a picture keeps me up on their activities. This painting was inspired from a friend I haven’t seen for a long time. Her mother was my midwife and delivered 6 of my 9 children. Because of Instagram I get to see a little of what is going on in their lives even though they live faraway.

I loved this picture the minute I saw it, and asked her if I could paint it…pure joy!!!
