Flowers make us happy

 I have the joy of playing with flowers for a job... and yesterday afternoon while putting flowers in a vase..the sun hit the vase and I just had to take a picture.. the light was beautiful....
 I remember reading somewhere.. this wonderful thought...that is so true.. God made flowers for us to make us happy.... I find that so true... because most of the people that buy the flowers are taking them to someone to make them happy..or to say... I love you....
 There is an endless way to put them together..my job is never boring.. also full of beauty and wonderful fragrance....

Preparing for Winter

Today was absolutely gorgeous.. went to the zoo with my grand daughter.. and we sketched animals... and just enjoyed watching them and the wonderful fall day.. the trees were all golden and the colors of orange and browns... I came home and had to paint something... Yes... we did see a lot of chipmunks running... and so because they fit so well in the fall colors , I decided to try one... I did it in my sketch book... I think it will do well on good watercolor paper , which I will try next...
I enjoyed painting this little guy.. remembered my class with Rob Odell... who paints trees and logs so spectacularly... ..
Now off to have some dinner myself...

First ATC ....

I traded my first ATC .. that is Artist Trading Card..... Christy Pullium sent me her card from New York City. She paints in Central Park... how cool is that?... I was thrilled to get it.. and it hangs on my wall in back of my computer.. as you can see I have favorites on my wall... . I also got a pack of tiny watercolor paper, used specially for Trading Cards... so if any one out there wants one of my cards... just say so... :)
