APPRECIATION FOR WHAT I HAVE

March 31, 2017  •  2 Comments

Earlier this week I put  a couple of messages on Facebook and Instagram that I had some free organic eggs because with it being spring time my chickens are laying like crazy and I got behind in using and giving them away.  A wonderful group of people got a couple dozen eggs each.  But one of them was someone I only knew through her Instagram page which showcases her paintings.

You see, I follow as many local artists as I can because I want to take their photos - portraits, sure, but what I'm really interested in is taking photos of them while they create art.  I love that, and I think it is beneficial to them to have photos that shows the work and talent and care that goes into their work.  Photos like that can help people to appreciate art even more, in my opinion.

Anyway, this beautiful petite little artist turns out to live within a few minutes of my home, so she came by to pick up her eggs.  And she gave me a whole new appreciation for my home and property.

She flat out told me that she has "always wanted to paint" my barn.  In fact, she asked a neighbor about it some time ago because she thought it was on his property.  And as we walked around my property talking about how I would love to have her paint here, she pointed out so many things that she thought were worthy of quick studies and full paintings.

Now, I look out the window and see a whole new perspective on my property - a new appreciation for its beauty!

And yes, she is going to come and do some plein air painting over the next few months, and I am going to take photos of her doing so!

Even Maple and Frannie like the idea.  Life is good!
