This is one of my favorite flowers

One of the true love in my life is oil painting! I have been doing it for many years. I do not have time anymore since opening my childrens boutique.
I would love to just take a day off and paint all day. That is my true relaxation!
I just lose myself in a painting and can look up and the whole day be gone! It is wonderful!

Hello from Winter. The iris painting is beautiful. I'm still learning how to set my blog up.

Thank you for sharing with us.

Thanks Winter and Patricia,

This is the first time I have ever shared my oil painting! I am just afraid it is not good enough to publish.
Thanks for the encouragement! It means a lot to me!

Hello Karen, I finally found you, your iris painting is so gorgous! I have painted in acrylics for awhile and I too love to get lost in my painting and sewing. You have a lovely boutique, I checked out the pics and...there he is, your little Ryan. My Emma and Ryan sure look like they would make good playmates! My ebay seller id is coloristic, I forgot to mention. I just started last month selling my totes/bags. I have made them for myself, friends and family and everyone kept telling me I should sell them so we'll see how it goes. I have a beautiful niece that lives in Sugarland, I don't know how far that is from you, I have been to see her only once, she usually comes back here for visits. Well Miss Emma is getting inpatient with me, she's after the cupcake I promised her if she ate her carrots, and she did. Bye for now, chat soon. LOL sister PEP

Hi Paula,
Thank you for taking the time to find my blog!
If you start one with your totes and bags I would be honored to feature it on my blog!
It is just great to have so many supportive people, that share your interest!
I would love to see Emma! You can post her pictures on your blog!
She would be a STAR!!
Thanks again for leaving me a comment!
