Pretentious Poppies ~ SOLD

"If you've never been thrilled
to the very edges of your soul
by a flower in spring bloom,
maybe your soul has
never been in bloom."
~ Terri Guillemets

Pretentious Poppies

It has been very quiet around here.
My parents took off for home yesterday.
We had a great visit and did a lot of fun things
while they were here.

Mom and I enjoyed doing art together.
She left with two matted 8" x 10" florals
and three framed 5" x 7" bird watercolors
that now hang in their motorhome.
She likes them so much, they will hang
in her house when not traveling.

My art lessons gave her a new found enthusiasm for learning.
I hope she finds some classes to get involved in at home.

"Get over the idea that only children
should spend their time in study. 
Be a student so long as you still have something to learn,
and this will mean all your life."

    1. Thanks Jen! We did have a good time painting together. Maybe next time they visit, we'll come back out your way! We had such fun with you.

  2. The poppies are beauties, Sandy! I love the photo of your mom painting. I get my nose into the paint like that, too.
