Some Favorite Things.

Some Favorite Things
8"x6" oil on Canvas Panel  SOLD

Artist Note
I just enjoyed a wonderful 
few hours in the studio.

I gathered a favorite porcelain vase
to go with some beautiful flowers
I was given over Christmas plus
a table runner that was my mothers,
and blissfully went into 
a zen zone.

Christmas was very, very special 
as I hope yours was too.

This will be the last post of the year.
Once again I thank you all for
following my blog.
Also for the friendship as well as
the encouragement I feel
you give me. 


I get so much pleasure out of 
visiting your blogs 
and being inspired, 
 not only with the images 
but also the words you write.
Thank you.

May 2018 be one of good health
and personal happiness for you all.
