Eastern Morning is coming! I saw this cross today on the way to church and it brought back so many memories of decorating the cross for Easter morning. Each family would bring colorful flowers and "decorate" the cross in preparation for the celebration of Easter. Seeing this cross today gave me a reminder of what is really important in life.....God, Love, Friends, Family, Forgiveness, Acceptance, Prayer, Joy, Expectation.........Happy Easter!
When I was about 7 years old I got a beautiful chocolate bunny rabbit for Easter. She was in a colorful box and she had a pink ribbon on her neck. I could not wait to show her to my grandmother. Unfortunately I had her in the car and I was not careful about keeping the box out of the sunshine. When we arrived at my grandmother's house I was so sad to see a puddle of chocolate with a pink ribbon floating in it. Enjoy your chocolate bunny rabbits this Easter!
My painting time is very limited these days. I was happy to see the challenge for a sunflower on the Daily Paintworks challenge. I did not have to "think about" what I really wanted to paint this week. I just got out my paint and took the challenge. If this one does not find another home, I have the perfect place in my own new home. I moved to Helena Alabama about a month ago and I am loving being 10 minutes away from my grandkids and only 25 minutes from an airport! I also have a new office/art studio and a wonderful back patio to paint on those lovely sunny days. The challenge was to paint a sunflower......this is a wild one....This is a 12" x 12" on gallery wrapped canvas....sides painted, no need for a frame.
I have been traveling every week with my job with very little time to paint but I am always taking photos and trying to keep my file of potential paintings full. I recently spent several days in Key West. It is a beautiful place full of color, artists, street entertainers and a lot of color. Roosters walk around freely and they have the most unusual colors. I took several pictures and had plans to paint one of these guys. This week the Daily Paintworks challenge was to paint a painting using your non dominant hand........this is really hard but I like the results. Let me know what you think of this loose interpretation of a Key West rooster.
