My Peonies painting is on its way to Virginia today. The woman who owned our house before us bought it. I hoped she would. She is the one that planted the peonies in our yard in the first place. I spent the morning prepping it to mail, writing out a little note card, taking a few more photos, etc. Of course just as I was ready to leave with my 3 1/2 year old ~R and little ~O it started to rain. But I was not deterred. A few sprinkles wouldn’t hurt it and well I just needed to do this and have the painting gone. I warned all the boys this morning that I was going to be taking it off the wall and mailing it. It was actually my very first time using a UPS store (when I mail jewelry I always use USPS).
I particularly like this photo of our kitty Rose with the Peonies. She spent many an early morning hanging out with me while I painted it, so I love that she sidled her way into the picture.
Now with an empty space on our living room wall its time for me to get out a blank canvas and start getting up early again. -I’m sure Rose will welcome the company.
