Shimmer - sold

I never get tired of the endless fascination of little children. I see it in my own boys every day, even now as they get older and are long passed the toddler stage. There is still so much innocence, and wonder in everything they see.
 
Children are my very favorite subjects. Which I'm sure comes as no surprise, but it's only been recently that I've realized it's not only my own children that are my favorite subjects, but all children. I love painting them. I don't know what else I can say other than that. Words seem to fall a little short.
 
I'll be out of town for the rest of the week on a vacation with my husband and won't be back until Sunday. So no paintings will be shipped until Monday November 12. And I won't be answering any emails until then either. :)
 
I'll miss visiting your blogs. :( But I'll catch up with you when I get back. Thanks for stopping by everybody. Huzzah!! Till we meet again!
