We all have our own little coops.. when it comes to watching covid around the world -this is what I have to remind myself. I just need to focus on my own coop, chickens - keep them healthy & happy -running around the pen chasing bugs. Gloria (who turned out to be our black ROOSTER -hahaha) loves to get a worm and run making a real chatter around the yard- it cracks us up - every time. It's that simple to laugh & de distracted by chickens- I don't want to watch the rest of the world.. self destruct.
One for me and one for - I don't know. It was just as easy for me to paint 2 of the exact same thing, side by side.. I might continue this & sell or give some smaller ones away.
Inspired by God the bible yesterday & proverbs -I came up with a sweet litle gardeners prayer and I'm painting it today on this drizzly afternoon (very happily) as awesome as this wet summer has been - it has been brutal on my arthritis, do not take things for granted - like putting on socks painfree. I have not been exploring as much and that gets me down but we've also BEEN BUSY. lol Can you tell? I swear - once we have trails these goats will follow us. ;) The plants in the garden are 3 times what they were last year! The berries are looking lovely too - so anxious for black berry pie.
It's a lovely Sunday, my favorite day - I like gospel music and Canoe FM 100.9 has it- it has me dancing already- what this body needs to wam up! Dancing is more fun that exercise- just ask Ginger.. she needs exercise this little loaf- she sleep with Norm (he moves less) and when he gets up to let the chickens out & goats- (which he has been) I hear Ginger trot over to my bed- up the stairs and under the covers. Lazy little muffin is in for a reality check soon when the baby arrives.
Yes, you read that right! Weeeeeeeeeeeee! A baby!!!!!!! Hee hee hee
I'm calling her Sunshine! Just so I can say - all day: Hello Sunshine!
Just so I can yell... Come here Sunshine! hahaha. Then.. that's it (incase Norm is reading) Sunshine will be trained to protect the farm. More soon...
lol Notice that?
How I snuck in that 'More soon.'. More what? Chickens?!
Theres always room for more chickens... At least one.
I'm starting a commission next - what a gift to paint this painting.. dogs.
Lot's of loved dogs.
I have decided to take commissions, I'm not opening my studio' anytime soon and have no place to sell my art - other than social media (which I do o.k. - THANK YOU!) but tis is another option and I can alwasy say NO, if not interested. I was approached about this painting I was pondering it... before I even said yes. My art is an extension of my love & I like to share & yes, I like to enjoy myself too.
That's all God wants, us to enjoy ourselves - feel JOY. Paint! Heck - I might even bake... no, I think I'll visit the 'Country Bakery' up the street for a treat - or two. Mmmmmmmmmm. If you have not been - I highly recommend. Her Goosberry jam- double Nom Nom!
God bless you, give thanks you are not one a covid statistic, look after your own coop.
