I have a good time trying to figure out how to mix a name with a nursery theme. Click HERE to see a few more.
Original Oil Painting on 6"x 12" Wrapped Canvas
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:He leadeth me beside the still waters.He restoreth my soul:
This painting as well as these words were inspired by Sara's Preserving Summer on this month's Inspiration Collaboration.
|He's my partner pretty much all the time.|
|He tests out the boxes I'm getting ready to mail paintings in.|
|He tries out every single box and is annoyed to be replaced by a painting.|
|Actually he'd like to lay on the paintings too.|
|He's curious about the suitcase and what that means for him.|
|Shopping bags need to be inspected.|
|He needs to stretch across a little quilting project.|
|He finds it's hard to lay on top of every stone of my mosaic stepping stone project.|
|Sometimes he lets the dog join us.|

I want to get it right for its forever home... even if that means chopping a half dozen trees and replanting them so that the road can be widened at the end then planting more grass so the road can be narrowed at the beginning.
A few years ago, that would have put me in panic mode. Now, I just take a deep breath, wipe off paint, and put more back on.
(Ok... full disclosure... I probably mutter a few choice unladylike words too...)
