Daisy Mae and Betty Lou Painting

I needed something fun to paint and this is what came to mind. I listed this little painting on eBay this evening. Daisy Mae and Betty Lou always take an evening walk. Telling Daisy as they stroll, how she was named after the wild flowers that grow in the fields surrounding their home, helps to ease her fear of the dark.

This past Saturday we celebrated Mother's Day at our house as well as my mother's and sister's birthdays. My daughter, Amber, surprized us and made each of us the cutest dolls. If you click on the picture to see a larger view, you will be able to see the names of the dolls on the little tags and a little info about each one. She has just started sewing and is doing a wonderful job. She would love to start her own little business soon. Her company is going to be called "Hoot 'n Annie". Isn't that just adorable!!


  1. After reading about every conceivable disaster around the world, it is sure a very welcome respite to view the beauty of your space.

    A belated Happy Mother's Day to you:)

  2. Love your painting!

    And your daughter dolls are so adorable! I especially love "Penelope", even though that is not my real name, I have been called that alot!

    I wish her all the success in her venture. The name of her business is adorable!

  3. Love your new painting, Catherine!
    Your daughter's dolls are adorable and I love the sayings on each one. I hope she does well.
    Have a great day!

  4. Hello Catherine,

    I see there are shadows for the houses in this painting. Is that because I made that comment some time ago? I didn't mean to be rude, I only wanted to say that I had spotted a distinctive feature on your paintings, it was in no way a judgement.

    I like this new painting too and the adding of a close-up of a character seems to be new too.

    I have started one of your projects from "Charming village". It's the tea shop. I tried to paint it on a canvas, but I must admit that it seems more difficult than on the usual wood surfaces I'm used to paint on.

    Can't wait to see your new painting :-)

  5. Love your new painting!

    Have a blessed and wonderful day!

    smiles, kari & kijsa

  6. Your painting is lovely, and the dolls that your daughter made are just precious. I can see that creative talent certainly runs in the family!


  7. The painting is so sweet! I love the little story behind this one :)

    Your daughter did a beautiful job, oh my gosh, I love those dolls! I would love to get one for my mom, grandma and I when she opens her shop! Just precious! Love the name of her shop too!



Thanks for taking the time to share your sweet comments!
