However, this trip was better than ever for the countryside was covered
in a blanket of blue....bluebonnets that is!
The state flower has never looked better!
Coming home last Thursday, I stopped so many times that I turned a 4 hour drive into a 6 hour drive! Seriously, every bend in the road or hill that I topped took my breath away. I haven't had
so many ooo's and ahhh's come out of my mouth since the fourth of July.
I spent a lot of time trying to analyze this shade of blue and what colors I would use to make it. This is a little game I play in my head, a challenge that keeps me mentally painting when I'm not at the easel. Just about the time I would settle on the perfect formula, the angle of the light would change and have me thinking again.

At 5:00 sharp, owner Lynne Keys, opened the front door and warmly welcomed everyone inside. Lynne, instantly recognized Coach, who is a bit of a local celebrity due to the popularity of west Texas football and struck up a friendly conversation. After a few minutes of conversation I felt as though I had a new friend. Inside the house was open, bright, fresh and sparkling clean.
The Homeplace took my breath away! Homemade yeast rolls, cornbread, home style vegetables, chicken fried steak tasted great, just like grandma made. We were so impressed and pleased we spent the entire time making plans to come back often and sharing the good news with all our friends! So hear I am, off to a good start and shouting loud and clear.
So the next time your hungry for a little bit of home, take your apetite to

Very soon, one of you will be receiving this 12 x 12 painting of White Geraniums, in the mail!
I painted it recently to celebrate Spring! It is truly a breath of fresh air to see God's creation budding forth in bloom! My soul is touched by His beauty! Captivated by His love which He has so lavishly bestowed upon us. Look closely and listen carefully. All around us nature sings His song. He's alive! He is good! He cares! Life can get pretty hectic and crazy, full of worries and fear. All of which can hide the Truth, but spend a time of solitude outdoors surrounded by His handiwork, enveloped by the symphony of nature and you will hear Him whispering, " I love you". It is a powerful message. The one we need most. It is a seed of hope that with His light and living water, springs forth into a new life.
I'll draw the winner next Friday, April 16th, by Random Counter.

Little Dipper.....................6 x 6.......................acrylic on canvas board
Tried something different today. I didn't have much time, so I set up this little still life on a vintage tablecloth and worked quickly! It's not perfect, but I like it and had fun painting it.
