(The color doesn’t look quite right on this photo to me, but it could be my computer, or so my son told me when he helped me take the picture, so that it would be good enough to make prints from. How does one know for sure? I guess I can view it on some one else’s computer and see how it looks…)

I enjoyed painting these two sweet sisters picking wildflowers in this field. The story behind this is pretty amazing. To keep it short I will just say that the parents ended up milking donkeys to heal a serious auto-immune disease that one of these girls developed over night… They now make all kinds of donkey milk soaps and skin care products. I saw this photo on Instagram and ended up painting it for the mom. She loves it. When the painting is dry I’ll deliver it to her and meet them all plus the donkeys. 🙂

Day 24 ~ Collecting Wildflowers

bike312″ x 12″ oil on black canvas

I started this painting Friday, the 27th and now it’s Monday, the 30th, the last day of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days. Already the other artists are finishing up and making collages and I’m still trekking along.  This one was inspired by my bike and the wildflowers I collected to make one huge beautiful wildflower bouquet.

My weekend was full of family and friends. We had a great time… love spending time with my grandchildren. But now I’ve got a whole lot of catching up to do, not just in painting, but my garden, my broody hen laying on 14 eggs under my porch and more…much more…

I am trading one pf my paintings for another painting done by an artist and I will share that in another post. I’m really excited about trading or bartering, an idea that came about by a spinner who is trading me homespun for a painting. What a fabulous idea!

So, if anyone would like to trade or barter, just let me know. 🙂
