Practice makes me happy

I'm having a wonderful Mother's Day. One reason is that I "dared" to paint in this little journal. And I "dared" to use brush strokes and try to not blend. I love to practice like that.

Another reason is because my sweet daughter will be here for lunch. He is doing the steaks; I am doing the salad; she is doing the bread and baked beans. We will have a great afternoon.

And another reason is I ask my random number generator to give me a number between 1 and 41 and He said 36. So Happy Mother's Day Pat who said...

"Well, now, Sharon...there's another book I MUST go and buy!!! You know I don't want to miss 'the story.' And, a giveaway..wow...two good things!! Can't wait to read all about you...take care, pat

I'm wishing for all of you the best day ever. And from the bottom of my heart, I'm thanking all of you for your visits and comments. I wish I could send you all something. Sharon

  3. So happy to come for a vist, and wish you what you are having a great Mother's Day. I am also happy to see the lovely painting and it is so carefree, it all seems to be so like the face that says I have been rushing and playing in the wind, like the wind has colored me for this moment.

    Family has left, going home after 31/2 busy running around eating days. It does wear me out, not in a bad way just in a way that my ordinary does not.

    I wanat to paiunt, but still I feel to scattered to do so.

    Congrats to Pat. lovely win.

    Hoping your day is long, so youu can look at the time and say it is only this or that and I have yet more hours in this day.

    I never think it is fair, in Wisc. the dairy cow gets a whole month, mothers get one day. So wrong.

  13. You "dare" so wonderful! I love the strokes and very little blending! Her face is great. I try that and then end up blending too much.
