This little painting was created on a 5 inch block of wood...something I've been wanting to try ever since I painted an wild rose for the Alberta Flood Rose Project last fall. I love the bevelled edges of these wood blocks and may try some more in future. This little treasure is now off to its new home in Lethbridge.
I've also been enjoying the company of my daughter and her boyfriend from University this week...I always miss my baby...and enjoying a great read:
The Forgotten Garden
by Kate Morton
A wonderful read that features three generations of women from the same family. A little mystique, a family mystery, a secret garden and powerful women...everything I enjoy. It begins in Australia and travels back to an English manor when a woman learns the truth of her heritage on her twenty-first birthday and sets out to find her real identity. Her granddaughter, Cassandra, continues the search after her grandmother's death and in the process finds her true self.
