Paintings for PPF and SS-Some Sad News

Hello everyone and happy Friday, happy Weekend! It's been a sad week. One of my co-workers and friends was in a fatal car crash Tuesday night. She was only 36, and her birthday was today. She had 2 small children (5 & 3) and a husband. We were all so shocked at work and sad. Usually we would take the birthday girl to lunch, and so we are going to lunch today in her honor.
I finished the painting from last week.
My husband liked it so it's hanging in our staircase. I also started a new one, but haven't done much with it since Wednesday.

I plan to paint pink, purple and orange flowers so it should be quite colorful.
I would appreciate your prayers for my friends family. Her name was Jackie, her husband is Michael.
Have a beautiful weekend.

It's so hard when someone dies unexpectedly. Sort of a reflecting experience. Sorry for your loss, prayers for the family!

Sending love and prayers for Jackies family... I am so sorry for their loss, and yours!

Your art is beautiful. I understand the delay painting those flowers. So sad when people are taken rapidly so young!

Big hugs Giggles

Beautiful pieces, the 2nd one isn't finished but I lije it just the way it is. Condolences to your friend's family. We were at a funeral yesterday equally sad. One of my son's best friends died suddenly and unexpectedly at 18.

I am sorry to hear about your friend. This is going to be very difficult on her children. Dad has a hard road a head of him. I will light a candle for this family.

Your art is lovely as always

Your painting turned out wonderful, no wonder your hubby wanted to keep it and hang it up. :)

I'm terribly sorry to hear of the loss of your coworker. How sad to leave behind children and a husband. She is in our prayers.

I just came back to say that I'm glad you jumped in on the bread conversation! I'm always happy to "meet" someone else who makes bread. (I hope this comment doesn't look horribly inappropriate amidst all of the sympathy posts. :/ )
