These are For You

Gathering a subject for this week's painting class was easy, all I had to do was look out our patio door! Yes, oh course I did go out in my pajamas, but I picked them in a leisurely way not my usual hectic running about. When I completed this painting,  my teacher remarked that I made a break through. I do hope so.... With that in mind, I am submitting it to Paint Party Friday. I have also included a picture of our dining room where this bouquet now resides. There is a close up of the little snail salt and pepper shakers my hubby gave me, because we both adore all things garden related.

Hope you will get a chance to enjoy some colorful flowers this week.
sincerely , gerri
