Time to Paint

Summer....time to paint. This week, I was able to paint in 3 different rooms for a neighbor. Her 2 boys share a room and they love cowboys. This was a real challenge for me....not my usual subject matter at all!

These boys, along with loving cowboys.....they do love to farm. This was more along the lines I am comfortable with. I have done several farm scenes in the past. This was for their play room.


And then, sister makes 3, exactly like my grandchildren, 2 rough and tumble farm boys and then a little baby girl. This is where I really feel comfortable...a little pink, a few flowers and some butterflies. I am so thankful for the time to paint, time to rest, rejuvinate and do some things I love to do. I am thankful for the gifts I have been blessed with, and happy to share!

Those are beautiful paintings. Those are some lucky kids to have their rooms painted like that.

Carol, I hope you don't get tired of me telling you how gifted you are...You are so gifted!! I love the butterflies and little flowers, but honestly, I am drawn to old red barns so you probably know which one is my favorite!

These are gorgeous!!! Not only are you gifted as an artist but you also leave the gift of yourself in every painting. I have boys so my favorite is the cowboy.
