A Winter Quinceañera in June

My beautiful quinceañera. She was really born in December, but with all the icy winters we have had in the last few years, we thought it best to wait until summer to celebrate. One of the first posts I ever did was of my oldest's quinceañera. It seems like just a few months ago. But five years later, this is where we are.

Ezri and her dad. I'm hoping he doesn't catch me posting that photo, but I love it so much.
We were thrilled to find beautiful Italian lace in the perfect shade of pink to make her dress. I spent two days. I'll have to take a photo of the back. It had a big satin bow with crystals sewn on the center.

My nephew and nieces.
My two wonderful girls who I love with all my being.

I don't like to paint things that I don't find to be attractive to me for one reason or another. Sometimes it's sentimental reasons and other times it's as simple as beautiful colors or the texture. Either way, it's something that I want to capture and stare at for long periods of time. I want to study it and how it affects the environment around it, as in the case of Sunflowers in Cobalt Blue Vase does. In that respect, I feel ALL my paintings are a labor of love.  More often than not, I have to create a painting, wipe it all down, and start all over again if something is just not working. Some never get completed and I just end up painting something totally different on that panel. Then there are some, that I just have to paint, no matter how much trouble they are giving

Thank you for the happy e-mails, the wonderful advice and sharing of resources, and your kindness and support all around. I've found that simplifying my life can be complicated and messy at first, but I am getting into the swing of things and finding my way around raising chickens, keeping bees, organic gardening and teaching art. During winter break, I started my coop plans--all the things coops had to have and the best way to build it so that that it would not be something my neighbors would mind seeing as they step outside their houses.
