Oil on canvas, commission

Hey! My last post, the wedding scene, was my 500th Accidental Artist posting. I bet I could see the fireworks and hear the marching band, if only it were night and I had my windows open.

I want to thank all of you who have been with me all this time. You've given me the support and the love I've needed to keep painting and keep posting, and not a day goes by that I am not thankful for all of you, and very, very grateful.

I am seeing my way clear to paint these days, in dribs and drabs, as my mother used to say. Often, I do everything I think I need to do to clear a few hours to paint, and then news happens, and whoosh - there go those hours.

But today, I have nearly the whole day, and tomorrow, too - and I have the commitment in my soul to keep going.

Many thanks, Liz! It's great to know there are people out there who appreciate this. I wish I was still doing the daily painting and blogging, but maybe one of these days again soon. Meantime, we all do what we can do, eh?

I've never been called "awesome" before. Cool!
