A Special Gift for Mom

Good morning and happy Sunday! I'm linking with SS today, and hope you will join me! (see link on the right)I've been working on my mom's 90th birthday gift and finally finished it.
The writing under the painting, is my father's. He wrote special notes inside of my sisters bibles and they sent a picture of the writing to me. He also kept journals that are included on the inside of the box. I covered the writings with velum paper, that had a print of my art. It was a lot (and I mean a LOT) of gluing, but I'm happy with the finished piece.
I'm heading over to Alexandra's place for Sunday Sketches this week! I can't wait to see what everyone else has been working on.
Happy week everyone!

A Busy Month!

Goodmorning and Happy Sunday! July was such a busy month, and I realized recently I hadn't had time to post in several weeks! I've been busy painting, mostly watercolors, and I experimented with papers and canvas together.
I taught a class to some of my friends during July and we all painted poppies together!
The gladiolas in this picture, were a practice for some that I gave a good friend who is going through a difficult time. Her's turned out even better.
We had an afternoon with my son and his family in July:
Then last weekend, we babysat for my daughters kids!
This is just a little of what has been happening lately. Other then this, we've had to install a new a/c and heating unit in our home, my car had repairs, plus needs a major repair, and I"m working on my mom's 90th birthday present! Whew!
What's been happening in your life this summer?
I'm linking with Sunday Sketches today. The link is on the right. I hope you will join me!
Have a happy Week!
