What a gorgeous weekend! It has been very busy though, so I haven't fit too much painting in. We went to a wedding at a local winery yesterday and it was wonderful. Here is a photo of my kids, Jordan 16, Tara 20, and Laura 19 standing on the picturesque grounds. There was a guest from California there who said it reminded her of Napa Valley. The ceremony was short, sweet, and heartfelt. Of course there were lots of beautiful wines flowing! A good time was had by all!
I tried something a little different this week with my painting. It is two wooden plaques connected with copper wire and has a copper wire hanger. The bottom painting is of a Halloween Princess Kitty at the ball with Mr. Pumpkin. The smaller painting above is a portrait of the Halloween Princess Kitty complete with fangs. I really like how it turned out. Check out the details on Ebay.
I am a self taught artist who has always enjoyed creating anything from a flower garden to the perfect meal. Now that my children, (ages 23, 26, and 27) are all grown up, I have more time to create! I also work 4 days a week during the school year with special needs preschoolers--which I dearly love! The children in my life inspire many of my paintings.
