      Thank You very much!!! And I bet You can!!! I think everyone can paint….it’s just a person expressing themselves through that particular medium. And we can’t help but express ourselves….we do it with every breath and step we take. It just comes out. For whatever it’s worth, I say if You want to paint….just start! Allow what specifically wants to come out of YOU to come. It may be like the masters of old or it may be a contemporary and abstract or You may have an artistic voice that is completely new to the planet!!! You’ll never know ’til You begin!!! 🤗❤️😊

          OH WOW! Coolest of cool beans! I LOVE that You’re painting!!! Cheers and Rock On and I say whenever You begin again You MUST follow the Golden Rule of Art: Your inner judge is NOT invited to the party. Period. Not before, during or after You paint. It can pick other things apart….if it must….but Your art is off limits!!! All-ways!!! Bon Voyage and YAY!!! 💖💖💖!

    “Water my heart” I love that line and I’m thinking people not plants 🙂

        I made the blog many years ago when I was having a rough time. It helped to see my blessings instead of looking at the bad stuff. To celebrate life and family instead of dwelling in the loss and heartbreaks. Then it became an ongoing journey of the worst , the best, and everything in between. But my favorite is reading the inspiring stories of others . Reminds me we are not alone in this world both in struggles and good times. Thanks

    Do you know what I like about this painting? The fact that the flower gets out of the picture. You’d say the painting is about the flower, but it’s not. Perfect! Oh, and I also like the colors of the petals. All in all an inspired piece.

        I guess I’m not a big fan of symmetry. 🙂 My ex (we didn’t part because of that, but who knows? 🙂 ) used to take pictures of me, and my figure was right in the middle of the image. I wanted the background to be the focus, instead it was me… and I’m not photogenic, but that’s another story. And my pictures of him were gorgeous landscapes and a guy who happened to be there, in a corner. That’s my “artistic” view. 🙂
