    Hi Tipper. You are one talented lady. All the paintings are beautiful.
    Congratulations to Marlene.
    I enjoyed the three Princesses creek tour too. They did a great job there. And yes, I lived in our little branch(a very small creek) when I was their age.My brother, who is 2 years younger than me, and our 2 cousins spent a lot of time catching crawfish and little fish. Then we would built pinestraw huts in the woods. Oh, yes. Those were the days!
    Have a great weekend.

    Your paintings are lovely, Tipper!And thank you for your kind mention. I visited Etsy. There are thousands of beautiful work to choose from! Was anxious to see yours. Is it in a particular category? You’re right, after Labor Day weekend, the rest of the year whizzes by because of the holidays! But we’ll enjoy every moment, filled with surprise and promise! :)) Petra

    Tipper I am blown away! I love your painting but I love more that you painted it. I have said before, but it bears repeating, God has blessed me indeed with friends I’ve never met but who have touched my heart. Thank you so much. I have to know about that rock – did the girls paint it? Blessings, marlene

    My daughter finds hearts EVERYWHERE! She finds rocks, leaves, pieces of things that have broken off in the shape of hearts. It’s really uncanny. She will love this. I’m just happy she can find love where ever she goes.
