This is a wonderful sunset that I caught one early evening out my bedroom window. It might have been after a rain storm. Unfortunately, clouds aren't a daily thing here in sunny Orange County. So, when they're abounding, my head is in the clouds. I believe this painting will go to a close friend.
My husband's family is here and I'm thankful he cooks the feast we'll have today. No, I'm not just sitting around, I did all the baking yesterday. Okay, he cooked dinner last night, too! Yes, I'm very thankful he likes to cook! I know I have many things I'm thankful for this year!! Happy Thanksgiving!!

This came from a photo that I had taken when we lived in Northern California. Spring time brings these wonderful flowers to life. The carpet of yellow is so vivid. I remember having to be careful driving sometimes because I would scope out places that I wanted to take pictures. I took the less is more approach to painting this and I was surprised how quick this painting turned out. I might tweek the sky a bit but I'm pretty happy with it. My daughter loves it and I might give it to her. What a nice mom.

This is a little painting I've been working on (and off) now for a while. It's for my son's "end of year" teacher gift. I came up with this flower by asking her in September what her favorite flower was and she couldn't ask why. It's almost done. If I leave it alone then maybe it would be.
