Something Old, Something New

Hello and happy weekend! My last post, showed a painting of a vase and I planned to paint flowers, but it was so horrible, I decided to paint over it. This is what showed up after the many layers of random painting:
I'm calling it "Eternity".
This next painting is a wip, which I'm planning to share with my friends at work who knew Jackie. (see last post)
This painting is called "Gathered Over the Rainbow". I got the title from the bible. When Abraham and some of the other patriarchs died, the bible says they were gathered to thier families. My friend Jackie told her 2 kids that their dog who died recently, had gone "over the rainbow". I wanted to have something to remember her by, and hope my friends will like it too.
That's all of the art I have for this week, but I do want to share a few Easter pictures of the grandkids!
I hope everyone had a Happy Easter!
I'm linking with Paint Party Friday and Sunday Sketches. I hope you will join me in seeing what the other artist are making.
Have a wonderful week!

I love both your paintings, and your grandkids are adorable. I believe that mistakes are opportunities for improvement, and you certainly did so in the first painting. Blessings!

Jackie would be honoured. A beautiful idea to show the transition from Earth to Heaven is such a peaceful supportive manner, on the back of an angel.

I like how your vase evolved. Lots of layers, patterns, and colours! How fun!

May peace fill your sad heart!

Grandchildren I am sure will help. Lucky you!

I really love that first painting, it's so beautiful .... Such a shock to read about your friend and co-worker. Even though you say the 2nd painting is for her, I think the eternity-painting is all about her too. Especially with these intuitive paintings it's really fascinating to see how feelings get translated onto canvas. It's such a great way to deal with them.

I'm so sorry for your loss of your friend Jackie. I like the painting Eternity. It is really gorgeous. And also gorgeous are your grandchildren.

Mistakes can lead us to new heights if we keep working. Your piece is lovely -- great energy and lots to contemplate. It looks like your work in progress will be very moving. Thanks for sharing your photos!
