Some new paintings

A couple of weeks ago I did some small paintings that I really enjoyed. I had so much fun I think I'll keep doing some this size. They are about 5"x7". I think I'm going to put the one with the butterfly up on my Greeting Card Universe store and Cafe Press. Neither of the originals is available for sale, but prints of the butterfly one are.

Please Pray for Noah

I have been receiving updates on and praying for baby Noah now for a while, and these last few days his health has taken a turn for the worse. He has undergone several surgeries in recent weeks and has developed a serious infection in the past several days. He is allergic to most antibiotics and is not taking in much nutrition. Please take a few moments to pray for this child, for his family and for the medical personnel who are working so diligently to try to help him.

Here is a link to the blog his parents are using to keep everyone informed. You will be blessed if you go and read a few of their posts! http://www.homeschoolblogger.com/ourquiverfull/

Plenty from a friend's garden

Several weeks ago a good friend invited ds and me to lunch after a pleasant morning of blueberry picking together. Afterwards, she sent me home with bounty from her garden! It was wonderfully colorful, so I took pictures before we began to consume it.

This weekend I did a couple of small paintings from some of the pictures, and began several others. I think I overworked these tomatoes, but I enjoyed myself! I'll post the others when I finish them.

On a different subject, we've been on two field trips in two weeks! Amazing. Last year in school we barely did two field trips in a half a year. Anyway, we went to the Audobon Aquarium in New Orleans two weeks ago when we traveled with dh on a business trip, and last week we went to Callaway Gardens with the same friend who gave us food from her garden. We have really enjoyed both trips. I plan to do more field trips this year to help ds enjoy school more. He is such a hands-on learner that I think they are good for him.
