  7. Hi R! Good to see you've been busy! These are perfect for a Children's facility. They give subjects for parents to talk to kids about and keep their minds on why they are there.

    Children naturally love butterflies and flowers and parents and adults will just appreciate the beauty, composition and serenity they feel when they view these!

    I'm hanging in there...thanks for asking!

  25. R Garriott!

    This triptych turned out awesome! The hospital will be pleased with these cheery, colorful pieces!

    I'm a fan of painting butterflies so these just spoke to me. The blooms and butterflies are rendered quite well!

    I love how each painting has it's own color scheme going on (blue butterfly = blue flower).

    Just lovely!

  27. R! So glad to see you! Like lunar cycles & the seasonal shifts in moods~ I think there is just a natural ebb & flow to the amount of time an artist can be "on" . It seems like a common theme on just about every single Blog I follow (myself included). It is a happy day when we reconnect :>)

    Your latest works are gorgeous~ very light and uplifting! Are you spending more time in the studio now that you have 4ft. of snow outside?!!! haha ~Lots of love to you.
