It was inevitable. While I've been clinging to their sweet pink and blue infant clothes and staring at their baby pictures, my babies have turned into kids!  Amelia's first week of Kindergarten has come and gone and we're starting week #2!

I'm adjusting.

Today I was so torn!  There are 2 photos of Amelia Jane that I wanted to attempt... Then I realized, duh! I can paint them both!! lol... I chose one for today and I will work on the other tomorrow...

I have had, as with most of the country, strong emotions over the events of the past month.  With piece I was tapping into those emotions! There is a lot of personal symbolism in this piece.  From the 3 stars, my bonus kids and granddaughter.  The 3 sunflowers, John, A...
