I wanted to share a link today. If you remember back just about before summer started I made a painting for Enzo who had a wish to swim with the dolphins. Well… I’m happy to report that his wish came true and last month he… well… I’ll let his mom tell the story… click here.
She was sweet enough to post the painting I sent Enzo as well. It’s a heartwarming story. I encourage you to add a smile and some tenderness to your day and head over and read it.
With the weather changing I’m turning my gardening focus indoors and tending to my house plants. This is one I picked up at Home Depot over the summer. I love the colors…. very pretty
I’ll be back tomorrow for Psalm Sunday.
Number two in my fall series of owl ACEOs. I layered a bit with decorative napkins that I’ve been buying and storing regularly. The majority of the circles are from the napkin and the rest are from rubber-stamping a circle with acrylic paints. I did a faint purple wash for the background and sponged the edges with black ink. I added a couple of layers of sparkle glaze to the larger circles to add some depth and texture to the card.
He’s just a fun guy hanging out waiting for nightfall so he can head off hunting. Owls can be an intriguing bird if you get the opportunity to see them. My great grandpa had a barn owl in his old barn. He ran a dairy farm for years and my grandpa (his son) delivered the milk in glass bottles to doorsteps all over the county. Oh for the days of such wonderful customer service. If my grandpa hadn’t been delivering milk he never would have met my grandma and I wouldn’t be here. So I’ll Owl-ways be thankful for that dairy farm.
