SOLD ♥Through every season, flowers are a necessity for me.
I paint them, I revel in their presence, I need them,
-- they are an essential part of my life. It's great
in summer when we can just go outside and pick them,
but in winter they are such a supreme delight.
For reasons I can't explain I am very tired tonight on this
the 26th day of The Month of Love. It has been a
snow coming down day (after almost no snow this month)
that makes me think of sleep, and want to curl up with a good
book (got one).
I love this painting and am so glad it sold to an appreciative
collector a couple of years ago. At that time I was trying to
paint one of the biggest paintings I've ever created. Then I broke
my wrist tripping on my cat, one night when I got home
from class. My husband was away. Not good.
But you know what got me through the night until I
went to the emergency ward? The gorgeous flowers in
our house. Today I'm appreciating how nice it is to be
healthy, whole and happy. And to have flowers -- an
Amaryllis coming out -- tulips. Now it's Nap time.
Have a loving your life day.
