Doing Better....

we wanted to say
Thank You
for all of the well-wishes for Peter...
he is feeling better, and is back to work today ~
he'll be monitoring his BP more closely for sure....
since he was home with me yesterday,
I just couldn't concentrate on my stitching~
so I got out my watercolors instead...

there's something so soothing about putting a wet brush
to a little cake of dry pigment,...
something magical happens and it just makes you feel better.

no worries, no rules...
remember when we were little...
and our small hands grasped those big wooden-handled brushes
loaded with gloppy paint?
...we wore our fathers shirts backwards for smocks
and how our mom's eyes twinkled when we gifted her with our naive artwork...

that's what painting does for me...
carries me back to a safe & quiet place ~
I'll be offering a few OOAK paintings
...and some prints in my etsy shop very soon

again, many thanks for everyone's positive thoughts and kind words for Peter...

Blessings from the Farm...



I am glad you were able to have a nice day for you and your husband. HUGS MARY

Glad your hubby is doing better! You sure are one talented gal in so many different art forms!

I hope that your husband will continue to feel better. It's a worry I know, when those we love, aren't well.

I love your watercolor. It's so very pretty.

Recently, I read a quote, that said "dare to be naieve". That sort of opened a door for me, and I feel a little more comfortable exploring drawing and painting now.
