This is a daily painting that I had to walk away from a couple of times. But reminded me of what I love about what I do. When I go back to the painting I see it through new eyes and can continue. I hope that when people look at me art its the same for them. That each time they look at it, its through new eyes.

I am still having fun with my daily paintings. Valentines Day will be here soon. I spent the day with my Grandson Micheal. We went shopping for Valentine's and lots of candy. Every candy he picked up he assured me that it was his favorite and that is why we had to have it. Yes, I am a gramma. We got them all.

I am finding that I am enjoying the daily painting thing to much. I am working on spending more time in the studio and now I am doing that. it feels great!
I just have to learn to stay there and continue working on the larger pieces I have waiting. I do have a couple of competitions that I will enter. The canvas are drawn, sitting here in my studio and ready to go.
I also do 3 art fair type shows during the summer with my Mom. Who is a fabulous oil painter. Those shows are coming up fast.
Anyway back to the twisted flamingo's . I have a cousin that Has a bath done all in pink flamingo's and this is for his collection. Hes gone this week and I was thinking about him.
I will get some of my mom's art and show you. It truly is Fabulous.

Larry and Chris is a painting that I did as a Christmas present for Chris. He had given me an old picture of him and his dad Larry that meant a lot to him. I had to make a copy of the picture for reference and he kept the original. That's when I knew how important it was to him and knew that it was going on my list of paintings I must do. Because for me to create something that connects with a person one on, one is the greatest achievement that there is. even though it was from Christmas. I forgot to take a picture of it before it left my studio. I have one now and wanted to share this father and son team with you,
