30 paintings in 30 days- Project II

I am recalling that one of the great things about this 30 in 30 challenge is the opportunity it gives to play, experiment and grow. After completing this painting I envisioned another way of tackling the sky- good thing I am doing another small painting tomorrow!

On a more personal note, my oldest boy turned 10 today. It is amazing to me that a decade has gone so quickly. He is a smart, funny, kind, caring "old soul" and he lights up my world on a daily basis.

*note: I left this painting at the studio, so it is not here to compare for accuracy of colour next to the image on the screen. I think it is close, though.

Love the painting, and Happy Birthday. Old souls just get younger. My Sammy is an old soul too. You are a lucky mother, and your Sam is a lucky, beloved boy.

I think I need a better picture... and thanks for the wishes for my boy!
