Big Thoughts!


Finished this weekend a gi-normous piece...for me.  This is 16x20....I never create anything this large.  But, I was feeling large, which obviously equates to large work!  Everyone was away from the house and all I seemed to do was eat!  Big appetite....big art!

But, in lieu of its largeness, I did love the big quote:

"the pleasantest things in the world are pleasant thoughts, 
and the greatest art in life is to have as many of them as possible"

Big thoughts!

Yikes, love it! That is a really big piece of work and so colorful and whimsical. I just chanced on your blog while spending an hour blog-hopping and I am glad I did.

We are relatively new and would love to have you come and visit. My daughter gave me the blog as a gift! She surprised me one day...I have wanted one for so long and she had it all set up!
