COLOR ME FALL 1,2, and 3 ~ I just finished these three ACEO size paintings today and they are acrylics on 140 lb. watercolor paper. I was driving to town the other morning, and I noticed all the wonderful colors in the trees which gave me the inspiration to do these. I'm not usually a morning person, but I did enjoy the misty blue of the morning and and the scarlet and gold in the trees! I sold 'Christmas Through the Window' on E-bay tonight, woohoo! I was leery of trying E-bay again, but I used to have lots of fun selling my trees in there. Auctions are pretty exciting to watch too! I'm listing these 3 ACEO's also. They almost look like they came off an assembly line and I did line them up and paint them all at the same time. Each one is a little different though.

These are all painted in acrylics, the top 2 are on watercolor paper, the 2nd is a 6 x 6 inch stretched canvas, and the last one is an 8 x 10 inch canvas board. I hope everyone is having a great weekend and TGIF!!

In Loving Memory of my Mother, Faye Sims (September 17, 1926-July 17, 2007) on her Birthday. She would have been 81 today ~ Momma, I Love you and miss you very much!
Special thanks and hugs to some friends...Babs (Wilson Art) for sending me this wonderful poem (below, author unknown) and for painting 'Sunrise for Faye' and sending to me. I'll treasure it forever! Here is her wonderful painting on top of my Mom's potato bin next to Mom's plant sprinkler.
I also want to thank my friend Cheri (Digis by Cheri) who send me a most wonderful book, 'The New Creative Artist' by Nita Leland. She sent it to me when I was out in Kentucky with Mom when she was very ill. I treasure that book and have read and reread it and it sure helped me get through some tough times. Thanks and hugs to you too Cheri! also, pssst: Happy Birthday to you this coming Friday!
To Those I Love And Those Who Love Me
When I am gone, release me, let me go
I have so many things to see and do.
You musn't tie yourself to me with tears,
Be thankful for our beautiful years.
I gave to you my love. You can only guess
How much you gave to me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown,
But now it's time I traveled on alone.
So grieve a while for me, if grieve you must,
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It's only for a time that we must part
So bless the memories within your heart.
I won't be far away, for life goes on
So if you need me, call and I will come.
Though you can't see or touch me, I'll be near
And if you listen with your heart, you'll hear
All my love around you soft and clear.
And then, when you must come this way alone,
I'll greet you with a smile, and say - "Welcome home!"
