Family Hike & Words of Kindness

A nice family hike. My sister-in-law, Jenna, is the best at taking pictures at our family events. So here I am (in the pink) with my cousin & brothers and the kiddos out for a fun stroll. I love my family! Click on the picture for a bigger version. Isn't Utah Lake beautiful in the background?

Here's another happy thing--I got the sweetest compliment on my paintings from a new friend:

"I don't find your work "somber" at all, (you commented that you're an up beat person and don't know why your faces never smile.) Frankly I find them contemplative. (Except Alice--she reminds me of whimsy.) I look at those faces and into those eyes and I find myself transported to a quiet, meditative place I didn't know existed. What's more, I like being there."

Wow--wasn't that sweet? I did another painting tonight, but I'm not finished so I'll post it later. I'll probably sell more of them. I like having the money come in to buy more canvases with--letting my art fund my hobby is lots of fun. =)

Just came over from Paulette's site - a big fan of her work. Are any of your painting for sale? They are just wonderful.
Best wishes

I followed you from comments at Suziblu's blog. Your paintings are fantastic! I can't believe you've just learned. I'm also a law of attraction lover so I'm really excited to meet you. I've added you to my bloglines. :)

Thanks! Yes, the Law of Attraction rocks! I see it in action in my life each day. The best part is, it's available to all of us--the great equalizer, eh? =)
