SUNFLOWERS

FINALLY, I THINK I DID A BIT MORE OF AN ABSTRACT PAINTING. MINE ARE ALWAYS SO REAL AND SO DETAILED. I’M TRYING TO RELAX AND LOOSEN UP, AND I HAD FUN WITH THIS. ONCE AGAIN, THIS IS A GREAT GIFT OF ETERNAL FLOWERS INSTEAD OF A BOUQUET THAT MAY LAST A WEEK AT BEST. GIVE […]

THIS 16″ X 20″ ACRYLIC PAINTING WAS INSPIRATIONAL FOR ME TO PAINT FOR MY LOVE FOR VALENTINE’S DAY. WE WALK EVERY EVENING TOGETHER AND THIS IS A HEARTFELT DEPICTION OF OUR PATH THROUGH LIFE. IT IS OFTEN SNOWING AND BLOWING BUT THERE ARE JUST AS MANY WALKS ALONG THE LAKE IN THE SUNSET. THAT IS […]
