nina and me

to explain a bit about the title.."nina and me"...everytime i find time to paint a bit..you know, the roses on my art dolls from Joanna's on line classes..maybe a nest or two or some twigs here and there...maybe some pine trees...i find myself thinking of my grandma whose name is nina..and imagine her here with me, watching over my shoulder..she went to heaven many years ago, and i truly miss her. I must get my love for the arts from her, i remember the summers she tried to teach me to crochet~~that one didn't take~~but the painting did~~once she painted little flowers on each square of the old kitchen linoleum~~ a few years ago i tore up the carpeting and faux painted/stained the old sublooring, wasn't bad, but fortunately we finally acquired new flooring!~~i love to paint, from faux painting i've tried on each and every square inch of my walls, to my newest joy of creating the teeny roses on my doll's foreheads...love it! i want to learn how to paint birdies next~~


  1. OH! Me too! I LOVE birds and want to learn how to paint them. I had a grandma just like yours and I often feel like she's looking over my shoulder and smiling at what I'm making!
    How's spring in your neck of the woods? It's trying to storm here... we'll see, as the sun is fighting to keep shining through the clouds!

  2. Will you write to me so I have your email?
