Well, it's been awhile since I posted. I've been doing painting of a different kind. My son is out of town and I've decided to add a couple of stripes to his walls and organize his closet. Yes, yes, those of you with children are laughing...and now understand. It was, mostly, a labor of love. I say mostly because he is his mother's child - I, too, saved every little cutesie gadget and gizmo that was awarded to me at carnivals, contests, Sunday school, you name it. I remember the frustration of thinking, "OK, where is the home for this thing?" And also finding it hard to part with the stuff. I'm praying that he will outgrow that as I have....though I admit having places in my home that still need some attention. Ahem. I mean, ok, let's be honest...an overhaul. So, with that admission and the joy of having completed a wonderful little room for my favorite guy I give you "Mom's Chickadee." This is by far one of my favorite paintings. My mom has always loved chickadees...you can see why. So cute. It was one of the first paintings I did when I decided to begin this painting journey. That little guy just makes me smile. I love his body shape. Such personality in their tiny silhouettes. God must've had a ball creating birds. :) I sure like painting them. Thanks, Mom for sending me the picture! I love you! And, I hope you all gain at least a smile from this little guy. If so, I feel accomplished.
God's blessings everyone!
