A Co-worker Fond Farewell

Shhhh it's a surprise!  One of our beloved long time co-workers ("J") has resigned and leaving at the end of the month, so naturally we are throwing a surprise farewell party.  For my gift, I am working on a painting... of course!

 "J" professed her liking of one of my earlier paintings of a sunflower, so I am creating a mini-canvas (6x6) watercolor just for her. I sure hope she likes it!  I just wish that I could write with a paintbrush, so I could paint a special message onto the canvas for her (sigh). I've got to teach myself how to write pretty with a brush!

The painting is still in progress, but here is what it looks like as of last night... keep in mind that my cellphone photos just don't compare to the real deal; it looks better in person LOL

Gifts of the Heart for Downs

I am so jazzed!  I have been asked to participate in an auction to raise money for Gifts of the Heart for Downs. I am donating my Down Syndrome Awareness/Support painting to help raise money to make wishes come true for children and adults with Down Syndrome. I can't explain how happy this makes me!

This bright cheerful painting will be shipped out tomorrow! I'm so pleased it is going towards helping with this  wonderful cause :-)

Come visit my etsy shop for more paintings, at Keltik's Kreations!
