"This Lil' Art of Mine" A Wave of Pink 8"x8" $95. including shipping

I painted this rose from one my Mom gave to me.  She was given a start of it about 30 years ago and has no idea what kind it might be.  I love the deep rose smell of it and I especially love that it came from her.

"This Lil' Art of Mine"

I'm starting a new series I'm calling "This Lil' Art of Mine".  None of the paintings will be over 8"x10" and many will be 8"x8".  All will be for sale for $95. to the first person to contact me.  That will include shipping within the United States.  Many will be painted from my little Riverside garden here in Columbia, Tennessee.  I have loved to garden most of my life which leaves me torn in the summer between gardening and painting.  I try to incorporate both into my days as it leaves me feeling unsatisfied if either are left out.

Plein Air Workshop in our garden

Okay you ladies know we had fun Saturday~!   I loved painting with you....it was just plain fun~!  You give me so much energy~!  I loved a note Debbie sent later telling me that she knew the colors had to be that bright because she had painted them herself.  As promised, these ladies saw amazing colors in nature.  When we are little and told that a tree is green and the sky is blue, we accept it and our brain fights us everytime we think we see other colors in those things.  We have to retrain our brain to accept that there is a multitude of colors in this beautiful home we call earth.  You ladies were amazing.  I couldn't get over your willingness to jump right in and put paint on the canvas....especially those of you who had never painted before.  I hope you're all believers now that painting is good for the soul.  To see more photos log into my facebook and you'll find lots.
