Favorite Thing #1: Nothing gets better than sitting IN MY FIELD painting. A few of weeks ago I got to spend an afternoon painting a couple of views of the freshly baled hay in Mr. Whicker’s field. I keep calling it “my” field, and it really isn’t. But I call it that because it is a favorite place to be, to walk by, to listen in, and to paint and draw.
Favorite Thing #2: Getting to be there long enough for TWO paintings. And then the very next day, the tractors came through gathering them for the barn. I was so glad I had gotten out there and captured their loveliness while I could. Hay bales, for some odd reason, are so beautiful to me! I like to think of them as all the colors of the field wrapped up in a bundle.
Favorite Thing #3: Offering these little spots of beauty from my life to yours. Please check out my Etsy Shop called Drawn2Shoppe. There are a few other original works for sale there. More will be added to the original paintings and drawings, as well as more knit and crochet patterns. There’s a special spot for commissioned portrait vignettes, which I’m very excited to offer!
Maybe these are a few of YOUR favorite things too!
