Time is a gift...and I used her today...

I had to give a class today and show some young children and adults how to paint. It was alot of fun bc I got to relax! How many of us *Takes time* ??? It seems its a rushed life now. I love the internet but I KNOW There was a time when people *took time* and had a coffee and or teas sat and talked. Picniced by a stream or lake etc etc etc the list could go on...So it was really nice just to paint something today. I used to kind of cringe and painting had to be just so. Now I just "DO IT" and get ion with it not so afraid and things come out quite well. So these are two paintings I painted today. Simple and quiet. Maybe not world smashing but like in the Movie Babe when the Man said "That ill do Pig" So I will say "This will do"

Time is a gift isn't it?!


You really should paint more, you have such talent. Those are so lovely. I can't decide which I like the best!


Ill get the heart one framed for you!!xox

your blog is so colorful! i love that you put up "inspiration" photos for your jewels, great idea:)


I love these little paintings. They are soo pretty. I love pretty, and vintage and then altered and grungy as well. I have two parts to my personality - and I guess thats how it comes out!!
Thanks for following my blog - you are inspiring me to make and photograph things as I go.
