16  x  20   Acrylic  
                                Available at

My daughter works for a great organization, the YMCA. She is a site supervisor at one of the after school care at an elementary level. They had a fundraiser today and I was invited to paint something.
Well I did this painting.
Painting in front of people with the intention of having something finished by the alloted time is a bit nerve racking especially when you don't even know what you are doing before hand and I just had an idea and a picture on my phone of a field of sweet peas ( small ) , but I kept saying to myself I can do this. Of course it helps when your daughter tells you "if you don't like it mom it's  OK you can make a little sketch of something if you want, just have a good time !" (awww !)
Well I finished in about 2 hours and had another 1/2 hour to spare so I started to sketch this beautiful little girl called Samantha with radiant RED hair. I was really happy to capture that smile. She is posted on my other blog Dancing Strokes .......check it out.

I'm not very good with list and research but I am good at recognizing when someone else is good at it and I have found 2 blog post that deserve to be linked to and mentioned especially with the advent of the site pinterest so with this in mind.
I urge you to read these and apply as much of what they are writing as possible.
We live in a society that has fewer examples of good teaching and what honoring others is all about.
So enjoy and apply.
