Happy, Happy...I finished a painting!!!

I'm in such a good mood! I love the feeling you get when you finish a piece that you really put your heart into. I've been working on this for while now, every time I had a moment to spare. It's hard to balance art time with family, house work, and my day job. Something always has to give. This week it was laundry. It piles up quick around here. Sometimes I just have to let it pile up or I will never get time to play with my art supplies.

The little poem reads:

the towering oak
through winters bitter slumber
remembers her friends

It's a bit scary to share poetry. I feel kind of like it's letting someone read your diary.
I wrote this years ago in High School English when we were doing a segment on haiku's
and I think it's very fitting for this painting. Hope you like it.

Collin's bike

Collin got a new bike! He is sooo excited about it! We went to dinner after we brought the bike home from the shop. Collin made this sweet drawing at the restaurant.
Hope you're all having a happy weekend!
