The Joy of Another

Here is the last painting in the series of three I gave my friend. This one is a little different from the others, but the colour palette was basically the same. This one had a lot more movement in it and to me it feels like happy energy. The title comes from me contemplating my friend's family again and thinking of her other true love- her daughter. This little girl exudes pure joy and innocence. She is kind, thoughtful, artistic and has this truly happy energy. She lights up a room and she is only in Grade Three! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that one of my boys will marry her!

Theses are the three pieces all together. Again, sorry the picture quality is not the best. They are brighter than these in reality. Thanks for stopping by to have a look.

These are really nice, Nicki! I would love to have a trio like this to hang on my walls. I really like the colors you chose and love the 'happy energy'. I feel it...

Hi Don,

Thank you for such a kind compliment. I am still always blown away with the notion that people like my work enough that they would want to live with it. Much appreciated.
