Baby Blues (acrylic on mat board, 10x5)

hydrangea on mat board

I bought a blue hydrangea plant covered with flowers a few weeks ago to help brighten our place up for Parker’s baby shower.  I finally got round to painting it today for the first time. It was fun to just puddle on a lovely, sunshiney day. 

I enjoyed this quote from Og Mandino today…

“Never allow anyone to rain on your parade and thus cast a pall of gloom and defeat on the entire day. Remember that no talent, no self-denial, no brains, no character, are required to set up in the fault-finding business. Nothing external can have any power over you unless you permit it. Your time is too precious to be sacrificed in wasted days combating the menial forces of hate, jealously, and envy. Guard your fragile life carefully. Only God can shape a flower, but any foolish child can pull it to pieces.”
