Oh Honeysuckle--it is so good to hear your voice.  Wondered where you were.  That is great that you are painting.  You have it so very hard as a caretaker.  Fabulous that your son is helping.  Keep taking some of that ME time because we have to get recharged to give back.  Can't wait to see your work.  Doesn't matter about the outcome sometimes, just the process is so awesome.  Will be thinking abt you at kickoff time tommorrow  ;)  Keep up the  :painting: and let us know how you are :hug:

So glad you are back on track again.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Dennis, same thing watercolor, did the dramatic clouds and oh how terrible the art was, but I really had a good laugh at myself. Haven't laughed in a while.

Now I know you are back to normal  O0 Art is, and should be, a de-stresser. Itshould never be taken so seriously that one cannot even take time to laugh.
 Proverbs 17:22 says, "A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones."

It is good to be able to laugh at one's mistakes and the things that just don't turn out the way we would like them to be.  :flowers:

 :wave: Hi Honey!

I'm glad things have been looking up for you.   :1hug:

Your son is very innovative.  How sweet of him to keep your hubby occupied.  I think it was good for all three of you, as it gave you a break, made your son feel like he was doing a good deed and allowing hubby to feel like he's helping.

It's a huge challenge to keep these dear ones happily occupied. 

You made me laugh when you talked about your dramatic clouds.  I sure can relate to you on that one!   :2funny:  Mine ended up with way too much drama!

You even did the tulip painting as well!   :congrats: 

I'm so happy to hear that you are feeling better physically and mentally and you've been enjoying yourself while you paint.   :hug:  :flowers:

"The way to be happy," said Winston Churchill, "is to find something that requires the kind of perfection that's impossible to achieve and spend the rest of your life trying to achieve it."

 :wave:  Hi Honey! So nice to hear from you and even better that you have found time for you. I watched the colour mixing (lesson #6) video yesterday...only took 3 hrs.! I guess I'm just doomed to have sub par internet!   ;D
So I'm practicing mixing some mud   :oops:  (sorry Dennis) colours ... I think its green....?   :confused:    ???  Will have a go at painting the stream and field. Then I must watch the cloud video...and paint the clouds. Stay tuned this should really be good for a giggle!   :2funny:  I'll show you mine if you show me yours   :heeha:
