Feed the Birds!




I know I have been painting a lot of snowy paintings, but that is all I have been seeing out my windows!! This painting, Feed the Birds, was inspired by my sweet daughter, Tara. She is such a compassionate soul. She is the person in our house who makes sure the birds are fed. Here is a photo of her reaching up to refill a suet feeder. It doesn't surprise me that she is studying to become an Early Childhood Special Education teacher. She loves children and wants to help those with special needs. I am very proud of her--and all of my children!

The next painting, My Heart, is my first Valentine's Day inspired creation. I used pages from a very old book on her dress. Both of these paintings will be listed on Ebay soon!

I'm so glad we don't have snow here at the moment, although last week was very icy here, I just hope the snow doesn't come back!!

OOOOH I love the girl with the white dress...so pretty. I wish I could buy more of your art...but I have so much stuff right now and my house is only half the size as my last one. NO PLACE for all my stuff.
