Sweet Spring Globe

I finally finished the springtime globe. Although I have always included a church and a variety of prim houses, this is the first time I have tucked a school into the landscape. I don't know why I haven't painted one before now. It seems it would be the natural thing to do after teaching for so many years. My parents, all my aunts and uncles and many cousins were all educators so I guess it was in my genes! Anyway, I am happy with the finished piece and already beginning to plan a summer globe. I am thinking it will be a night scene with fireworks..... what do you think???

Beautiful and a fireworks theme would be great along with a picnic theme.

Thanks my friends! I think I might start on the summer globe tomorrow!!!! I love the idea of the picnic --- a big celebration with watermelons!

Oh I love that idea! And lots of flags! And sunflowers and watermelons in patches!

I'm really enjoying these, Martha!

I am in shock! I'm not sure I could sit long enough to paint something like this EVEN IF I COULD!

You are incredibly blessed!
