One last thing... My oldest son, who has just barely finished his junior year (adding much to my unwanted gray hair collection), as it turns out only needs two classes to graduate! Two! And he can take them both at the local school 1st and 2nd hour, back to back. Hmmm... Opportunity, afterall! "He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust." Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare..."
It's hard to tell from the photos but the oil paints are layered so thick that the rose petals stick out away from the canvas - They turn and fall and cast shadows. So cool!
I got it on ebay for $31 plus shipping and I think it was a steal. I love rose paintings. Since I'm always aspiring to be a rose painter (and failing miserably), I really do appreciate art even if wouldn't fetch a big price at a market.
Speaking of art in its many forms, I got an interesting email the other day. Remember that Fairy Festival video I posted a few days ago? The lady that was singing in the video sent us a little note: Greetings! Hi, I am the musician from the Spoutwood Fairie Song which you so kindly posted on your blog site! I just wanted to thank you for including me on your wonderful site. I LOVE your taste ~ we share similar interests in vintage fabric and shabby chic. You create wonderful things with your collection though, while the things I have sit in storage (she obviously hasn't seen the fabric stash)...! I admire the way you proclaim Christ. That is something that I need to do more of.I guess that's all for now. God bless, Janet Spahr --We have new kindred spirit to share our treasure hunting with! She told me that she has a CD out. If you would like to take a listen, go HERE. I think this one is my favorite clip.
