Happy New Year!

Mexican Jumping Pears – acrylic painting by Heni Sandoval

Mexican Jumping Pears is one of my early pear paintings.  I chose the name because the colors and the bowl reminded me of Mexico. The pears look like they are celebrating, almost jumping out of their bowl with the colorful movement all around them.

Today I feel like celebrating, yesterday my girl completed her college applications.  She has already gotten accepted to UGA which is no small feat and has now applied to two private Northeastern colleges.   She worked diligently to get them done.  The teens these days work so hard with their demanding school work and their extra activities. I’m glad that she can now can relax and see what happens.  My husband and I are happy and very proud of her, wherever she ends up.

I’m looking forward to getting back to my painting routine and hope that everyone is off to a happy start to 2015!
