NEW SPRING PAINTINGS


Here are a couple of new paintings I just finished;

Balloon Escape-Don't you wish all of life's disappointments were as simple as an escaping balloon?

Peace on Earth-This painting was actually inspired by the bulletin board in our preschool classroom. We have a big globe that the kids "hand painted" with a mixture of shaving cream, glue, and green or blue paint. It makes a fun 3D puffy texture when it dries. Then they all put their hand prints in a circle around it.

I hope everyone has a Blessed Easter. I will be having the family over on Saturday. It is always a loud, happy group when we gather. I'm hoping it doesn't rain so our Easter egg hunts will not be muddy! There will be at least 20 of us.

I'm heading over to list these paintings on eBay now. I have also re-listed a couple of paintings, in case you missed something.

Love the paintings, Cris. I am sure you and your family will have so much fun. I do miss that, well, only when we actually got along. LOL 6 kids always bound to have issues.

No plans here, but that is fine with me.

Happy Easter!
