What a celebration! Grandma Chickie turned 100 on January 4th. She had so much fun visiting with people who came from miles around to share this day with her. Here she is holding her high school graduation picture. She honestly told the news paper that she didn't know if she could make it another 100 years. This great lady still lives on the farm and inspires me every day.
My father in law is still in the Rehab Nursing Home working hard to recover from a stroke. He has been back and forth between the V.A. Hospital and the nursing home due to a few setbacks. Please keep him in your prayers because he sure has a long way to go.
This week I've been setting goals for myself and my artwork for the New Year. Yesterday I finished this little Valentine Painting and will be working hard to paint more this year. Motivation has been very difficult for me this year, but I promise to get with it soon.
"Cupid's Arrow Valentine Cupcake"
Tiny red sprinkles glisten on the edge of this luscious butter cream frosting. This chocolate cupcake in a red wrapper is accented with white hearts. A red "cupid" heart pearced by an arrow tops it off. A red and white dotted ribbon is wrapped around the edges of the canvas and tied in a bow at the top.
Hopefully lots of new and exciting paintings will fly out of my studio this year. If you have any ideas for what you'd like from my blog this year, please leave a comment. Please leave a comment anyway because I truly love reading everyone of them!
