Painting is Joy

Painting is joy for me. The desire to create something beautiful.  Before Christmas I was privileged to be commissioned to do a watercolour of two dear pets.  It was finished and duly sent off.

I wondered how they liked it, how the recipient liked it, and what it had been framed like. I received a message after Christmas with a picture and note.  It has been framed and now hangs in a special spot in their home.  It is very exciting for me and a blessing.   Here is the framed picture.  Framed

Creating paintings or any art form is an expression of the artist themselves.  Something that needs to be brought to the surface.  What do you do to express yourself?  Are you a writer?  Do you dance or sing?  Do you create by adding colour to a picture already drawn or perhaps you play with paper scraping?  Knit or sew?  I would love to hear from you.


  1. Wow, that is truly a gorgeous painting! I bet the recipient loved it. I would love to try watercolour again someday, tho I always end up with a mess both on and off canvas. 😉
