A happy finish

This little painting -- Golden Sunlight Cherrywood
sold yesterday at the Don Valley Art Club spring show.
I know I showed it to you while I was working on
it, and I finished it up on time to submit to the
show a week ago on Monday.

I liked the fact that it looks so cheerful when it
was painted mid-winter. Light always makes me
joyous, and the end of day light that day was
spectacular. The man who bought it was struck by
the happy mood, and I told him I work on being
happy full time. So that is a wonderful thing to know.
The painting has gone to a collector who understands
what I was trying to do.

It's a busy day here. So I'll talk to you tomorrow.
Enjoy the spring.

Have a looking-on-the-bright-side day.

Congratulations Barbara! It is a beautiful painting and isn't it nice that it went to a person who 'got it'.

Hi Barbara
This is a really beautiful! painting! - as is the mother and child painting. I love the way the mother holds the little boy close to her and how he has that wonderful impish look in his eye that you’ve given him!

I know you’ll have a wonderful time in NY. You might find that it has almost the equivalent energy to match your own! I'm fairly certain you won’t want to leave.

love you,

Hugs!
