My aunt paints pictures and has been trying for years to get me to try my hand at it. Well, I am now retired and have time to give it a go! This is one of my efforts!

Supposed to illustrate the 23rd Psalm. Those blobs at the front represent sheep!

This is supposed to be a bridge in our local park. I think I should stick to barns.

Thanks for your encouraging comments! Believe it or not, people have asked for three of these. They asked how much I would sell them for, but it's hard to think that someone would pay for my dabblings.

Sell them if they want to buy them! You have more talent than you think!

I love them! Did you take a class? How did you get started?

My aunt paints, and I've always admired her ability. Now that I've retired, I decided to do something way different--so I asked her to give me some pointers. I just dabble at it--no great technique! Thanks for your kind words!
