Clover Hill Folk Art Painting

New listing for my eBay auctions:
Click on photos for a closer view.

Avary and her mother, Ruth, have worked hard all morning making a surprize, giant cupcake for their friend and neighbor Miss Hester. Everyday after school Avary stops in to visit with Hester who fell and broke her hip while pruning her climbing rose bushes that grow up the side of her stone cottage. Avary has been doing chores and helping in the garden until her friend heals and asked her mother to help her with a surprize for their ailing neighbor. Getting up at the crack of dawn the mother and daughter team made the most delicious giant cupcake and frosted it with fluffy pink butter cream frosting. Ruth sent her daughter up Clover Hill to the little cottage at the top of the lane with her sweet treat in hand.

Soon I will share with you another project that I'm doing for our bedroom. It's been fun and I can't wait to show you.

I was honored to find out that I had won second place in the Artist's Choice Awards on eBay for the "Folk" category.

  15. Wow, that is a great painting and would make a wonderful screensaver. Have you thought of doing that? That is really beautiful and I would love to be the one walking there, except it looks rather "hilly" and my arthritis would act up. Great job. By the way, I'm visiting your blog via Pennys. Thx for sharing.
