My daughter, Laura doesn't have class on Friday and we spent the day painting and listening to old jazz (like Billy Holiday). It was a quiet, happy day- doing what we like best. I love being able share this with my "middle baby". She sells her art on Ebay while she pursues a degree in graphic design. Later that evening the peace was broken when my son (Jordan, 18) had 8 of his buddies, boys and girls, spend the night. Laura and I watched "My Sister's Keeper". OMG that is almost just too horrible to watch. Don't watch it if you are feeling the least bit vulnerable or you will be crying for days! The paintings I finished are available on Ebay right now. I was feeling like Easter and this is the result. I think the Siamese cat thinks there are little chickies in the eggs and he is hoping they will "come out and play"!
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.
