I am having fun with this vintage song book called Musical Gems for Rural and Village Schools. I hope it wasn't worth much money because I have been cutting it up like crazy for my art work. I don't even remember where I got it, I have had it a long time, but it was published in 1897. This painting, Garden of the Heart, is up on Ebay right now. The other little painting of a fairy holding a bee had a starting bid of only 99 cents! Both of them have FREE SHIPPING in the U.S. as usual!
A beautiful day today in the St. Louis area--high in the 60's, but they are saying snow flurries this weekend! That's St. Louis for you--if you don't like the weather, stick around, it'll change!
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.
