Wow, that is stunning, Lynn! Thanks so much for sharing - you brightened my day. (And made me long, yet again, for just a little free time for painting! The only thing I do these days is small travel sketches on the rare times Dan and I can get away, maybe a few days once or twice a year.)

Thanks Laurel. Retirement and life after caregiving is very rewarding now. I hope you can find some time to create your art - it's a great outlet from the stress of working and caregiving if and when you can squeeze it in. Have a peaceful day. Lynn

It's too bad more people don't take a break from the more serious stuff, and enjoy life a little! Glad you got to it!

You're right! The best medicine is thinking about something else!! Sure wish I had some artistic talent though. :)

I know that this thread is kind of old, but I just Have to comment on the paintings. I LOVE flowers. Most of my adult life I have grown oodles of them- I've usually had vases of fresh flowers in pretty much every room 9-10 months out of the year. I don't have the time now and I miss them so.
Your paintings just filled my soul. Thank you very much. I have always been crafty-sewing, knitting, scrapbooks, jewelry making, quilts, etc., but I am downright envious of true artists. Fortunately I have learned to convert my envy at not being able to make fine art to appreciation that others can, and that I can enjoy it! Thanks for this little perk up!

Thanks, Diana. I am taking a break from an art open studio today, and I should post some new photos here! Haven't posted in a while and I have a bunch of new paintings & collages. I'm glad they brightened your day!

Lovely...I have done a tiny bit in water colors, but nothing serious. Still have some materials & hope one day to get back to it. As for now, I crochet...instant gratification & if it doesn't turn out, rip it out & start over. Your postings do encourage me try painting again.

Lynn, these are gorgeous! And probably a lot of fun to do. They are Gauguin joyful and the up close perspective is simply stunning! Thank you for sharing these inspired pieces!

Wow, I love it! My mother and I both had artistic leanings, and we would frequently go țo the Art Institute in Chicago. She would have loVed seeing your flowers. Art -- seeing it, making it -- is so wonderful. Don't get me started!
