Default My 1st Painting

For those of you who are interested, here is a pic of my very first attempt at painting:

It is supposed to be "Folk" style, like Maud Lewis or Grandma Moses.
It is my new home in Nova Scotia, with artistic license, in that I've filled in my gardens the way I WANT them to look!

Great job RD.

You go, girl!!! I knew you could do it. But Donna, I hope you wouldn't expect me to be surprised - I've had samples of your art in other forms on my walls at one time or another over the past 33 years, so I had faith.
