Mother & Daughter

Hope everyone is ready for a new and exciting 2010! This is my 100th post and I can't believe how fast the time has passed since my first post in June 2008. Thanks so much for taking the time to visit my blog and especially to leave a comment. I've been so fortunate to have comments that are both encouraging and uplifting. As an artist, I am looking forward to the next year and what experiences it will bring and hopefully will continue to learn and grow.

Happy New Year from the Smith Family

I haven't posted lately because I've been visiting with family, doing a little entertaining, working and of course painting! This is a portrait that I have been working on of a Mother and her Daughter. They look so happy and I hope that is an emotion that I have captured.

Rhonda, I just love your painting. Spending time away from blogging is good, it makes you feel more realaxed and spending time with family is always valuable.
I hope you had a wonderful
Christmas and look forward to what you are up to in 2010.

Suzanne, you are so right, a break does wonders.

Thanks all and glad you like the painting :-)
