Here is a great pic of my Hannah Grace
We have a 2:00 appointment today with the neurologist because of a seizure Hannah had Christmas night. Its been 8 years since she had her last one, so this one took us by surprise, I suppose as they always have.
Here is my update on this weekends flower
The chalk swirl at the top right I plan on removing

Have a great Monday

I hope your holidays have been good.
We have had my sister in from Texas, which is always fun for us : )
This painting is done on a small block of wood,
maybe 3X3
It's that Mother wanting to protect her daughter in me
The painting below I started last night
3ft x 2ft
At this point I'm trying to decided what to put in the center of these flowers and if I want a branch up in the top right hand corner...hmmmm

Have a great weekend

Austin's Tree

16 X 20
Wrapped canvas
Austin's Tree

Our friend Austin was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma
A malignant brain tumor
We met Austin 8 years ago when my daughter started kindergarten and have been heart sick over this diagnoses of our dear friend.
Last night was a benefit to raise money for him & his family
They had a turn out of almost 200 people!
My daughter & I created this painting for their silent auction
and once again it came back home with us. I have this problem of letting paintings go sometimes.
If the bid doesn't go high enough for me...I just become the highest bidder.
Next Sunday is the sale that I'm in once a year, so this week will be busy trying to figure out what I'm taking and what still needs finishing.
Hope your weekend was a good one.
