Hearts and Roses Oh MY!

Last Sunday, I awoke and this pictures was on my mind. I do this a lot! So, finally on Monday, I had a chance to sit down and paint it. As an artist, I many times will mull over a piece before I actually paint it. I do most of my paintings in acrylic, so I know that I have little time for error, cause the paint dries fast! Anyway...I have had this sitting on my desk in my kitchen area, so I can look at it. I am not sure it is done I need help...I was thinking it might need more color. Like some lilacs or blue flowers...could really use some honest opinions on this....What do you think?

Then..this week I took a load to goodies to my friends store. I have been making sweet little Tea Cozy's to sell, and some handpainted items too. I just love her shoppe and I forgot my camera...cause I wanted to share it with time I go, I promise I won't forget! Well, I just loved this one I did. The sweet colors roses and all are just so precious! I decided to hold on to it so I could list it Sunday on ebay! IF you are intersted, these both will be on tomorrow evening when I list my latest renderings!

Dear Sweet Friend!
I don't think you need to add a thing to that painting, and the tea cozy is just darling! Ya know, when I have friends over for tea, I always wish for one of those, so when you come for tea you have to bring one...I will supply the Teapot and cups! Oh yeah, you will need to bring some cookies, I will make the salad and sandwiches. That should do it! What fun!
I will email you when the weekend is over so we can catch up...

Also, thanks for listing my blog as one of your favorites. I needed a boost to help me get started with this fun stuff! Hope to see you and Susie soon.
