This week I've been working on a painting called "Bed and Breakfast". The name came to me while I was sketching it. A while ago, I painted 2 paintings with birdhouses in them... one was a winter scene and one was a spring scene. I wasn't aware of how much my husband like those two paintings... i didn't realize he like birdhouses so much. He plays hockey, watches sports, goes to beer festivals.... and likes birdhouses... go figure. It became more obvious to me, when... after I had finished a painting, he would ask... "Where are the birdhouses?"..... even if it was a painting of a ski hill...or the top of a mountain.
So Dan... here are your birdhouses, and I must say... I painted this one with a smile on my face. I enjoyed it from start to finish.

Appreciate you reading and sharing your story since I can certainly relate and I think others can to
