An early AM with nothing but gratitude because *one year ago todayyy* I made my first dollar from painting. What a trip around the sun it’s been!! Thank you universe for the wild ride and thank you to each and every lovely human that has supported me this past year 🖤🖤

“Camouflage “ 18x24” oil on ACM panel Background story of this painting: This is Ezra, one of my grandsons . His father, my son, built a large chicken coop in their organic garden & my husband & I were helping paint it . Ezra & his little brother were helping paint as well. I asked him to pose for me for a painting & wear a specific shirt. Ezra wanted to wear his “paint shirt “ because it was black & white and matched his favorite little chicken, Gingerbread Joyce. So the white paint splattered black shirt it was & I’m happy with his choice.
Thanks to @gallerystreet for the great digital capture. ...
