Recently a customer suggested that I paint a beekeeper's cottage.
I have been painting for over 30 years and there are days that I fear my ideas will run dry and I'll wake up and stare blankly at my canvas. Thankfully between my imagination and wonderful ideas from my customers, that's not happened.
I've listed "Beekeeper's Cottage" on eBay.
Iris and Floyd live in the Beekeeper's Cottage at the top of the hill in the charming village of Asbury. Floyd loves the buzz of the bees as he observes his hives and extracts the honey. Iris stocks the pantry with the liquid gold and stands back to admire the handmade labels she applied to the jars that morning. The jars are topped with red and white polka dot fabric tied on with jute. Thoughts of her "Honey", Floyd, and the many bee stings she has applied salve to over the years puts a smile on her face and love in her heart!
I'm a collector of ideas, peoples names, village names, etc. and I keep them in a little notebook. Don't be shy if you'd like to share something to add to my little book of imaginary places and the people who live there. I would like to thank all the readers and customers out there who have freely shared in the past. I'm truly grateful!
