Wild Rose Crossing Folk Art Painting

This evening I added another small painting to my eBay auctions. I had way too much fun painting this one. My mother gives me a hard time about all the big hills in my paintings and I thought it would be fun to add this cute gal rolling out of control down this slope.

Paula realized, a little too late, that she had outgrown her bike from the previous summer and keeping her feet on the pedals was no longer possible.

Wouldn't it be fun to live here along the water where you can cross over the bridge to visit with neighbors. I'm so ready for spring and as I type this, it is sleeting and the wind is blowing wildly. We are supposed to get 3-5 inches of snow by morning.

I have so many blogs that I love to read and Penny's from Lavender Hill Studio is one that I go to daily. She does the most beautiful mosaics and is one of the sweetest bloggers I've come across. She has presented me with this "Spread The Love Award". Thanks Penny!

"When you receive it you are in turn supposed to award it to someone else. The award is for spreading love, support, and blogginess to those people and blogs that make you happy and in turn, make others want to spread some of that good stuff around too*!* You are to then go to leave them a comment letting them know that you left them a little tidbit on your blog”.

I am passing this award on to:

Rose at Classic Charm for her "charming" blog with decorating tips and "charming" wit. She has a lovely family too.

Cindy at Rose Haven for her healthy eating/cooking tips, gardening, and for saving that cute little kitty, Lucy!

Melissa at The Inspired Room for her "inspiring" words on decorating and life in general. Thanks for letting me do the "Dragonfly Cottage" painting from your photo!

Thanks ladies!!
