Mexican Jumping Pearsis 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!
Happy New Year! I put up my Pink Lotus Blossom today as the Lotus symbolizes new beginnings after growing up through the muck at the bottom of the pond. 2013 has been a challenging year for some of my friends and family but I’m getting a good feeling about this new year. Personally I am feeling very upbeat, things are looking up all around us. A very good friend of mine is relocating from the West Coast to North Carolina so we will be able to see each other more often. My eldest niece is days away from having her baby, the first in the new generation so we are all excited for her and her husband about this new addition to our family. My daughter will return from winter break to a brand new state of the art building instead of the trailers where she has spent most of her high school years in. Lots of good changes going on. I hope there are good things happening for you and that this new year brings much joy and happiness!
