Thinking of You

"If I had a single flower for every time I think about you, 
I could walk forever in my garden."  

~ Claudia Ghandi ~

"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, 
they are the charming gardeners 
who make our souls blossom."
~ Marcel Proust ~


  1. Painted this card in watered-down acrylic paint (burnt umber) because I couldn't find my watercolors!

    I found inspiration for the flowers, books, and teacup on Janet Martin's blog ~ one of my favorites ~ Another Porch...


    I still want to do a painting that follows Janet's photo more closely... sometimes I pull inspiration from numerous mental pictures and memories to form what comes out on paper, and that's what happened here!

  2. I love how you've taken whatever was at hand to show us what inspired you!

    It's beautiful.... love how it looks in burnt umber.

    Wishing you lots more glimpses of heaven in unexpected places..........


“Kind words can be short and easy to speak,
but their echoes are truly endless.”

~ Mother Teresa
