A bit of organization

I was inspired by this pin I found on Pinterest (bottom image) and it was brilliant!  I had an old dough board (I've had it for 25 years) in my attic.  At least I think it's a dough board.  I hesitated using it but thought it would finally be appreciated rather than tucked away unseen.  Love how it turned out.

Everything changes.......

My last post was in early March….the winter was showing no sign of letting up and I was looking forward to following the progression of Spring as each flower would come into bloom and I would take my camera and record the changing of the seasons.   My sentence began….”This is the month when everything changes…..”   What I didn’t know then is that by the end of the month my world would change forever.  On the 21st my husband passed away after a short illness. I’ve retreated into a quiet place while my heart attempts to heal.  I make attempts to paint because that is where my comfort zone is and having this place to record my artistic progress helps to bring me back to that familiar comforting place.  So gradually I will return….
