Birthday painting


Just finished an acrylic/collage painting for my daughter's thirtieth birthday today. The photo looks quite dark but the painting actually has a burgundy look. Talk about leaving everything 'til the last minute. I baby sat my eight month old grand daughter last night and she did a terrific colourful work of art with her hands and feet for her Mum. I took a frame over and framed it, wrapped it and left it next to my grand daughter's cot for my daughter to find this morning, she was over the moon, it's hanging up already. I don't have a photo of Sienna's painting as we were so rushed.

Oh, this is a nice painting, Ro. Wish I could get a closer look at it. And what a super grandma you are! I wanna see Sienna's painting. Sienna is the grand daughter, I take it. Of course she is a grand artist -- just look at her name - Sienna -- perfect for an artist! One of my fav colors.

Yor painting for your daughter is glorious, so rich and deep! I cna't wait to see the photo of your Granddaughter's work!! As a Mum, I would have been over the moon too!! What an incredibly awesome family treasure for all of you! Just think of how empowered Sienna will feel about her artistic endeavors when she realizes how much her efforts were appreciated at such a yound age!! What a wonderful grandmother you are!!!!
