One of my FAVORITE places on Earth

I love to paint pottery! It wasn't something I ever really thought I would enjoy or be good at. When my boys were babies I found a place where I could enjoy some quiet and some time to paint. I didn't like much that I painted in the early years, but I went back because I needed some time away from the craziness of life. Over the years I gradually got better. Mostly because of Kim. She owns The Painted Poppy and is sweet enough to be paitient with a crazy lady like me. She has taught me several tricks to help my items turn out better, and is even willing to draw out at least 10,000 zebra stripes!!! I truely enjoy painting now and have even gotten brave enough to give pottery as gifts. I also have had the blessing of being able to call Kim my friend. God knew just what I needed. If you ever happen to be in Odessa TX you should stop by and paint awhile. Here are a few of my favorite pieces.

Why do I get this feeling that you might like zebra stripes?! LOL Those pieces really look great! But, the fact that you're artistic is no surprise to me. :) If you'd like to see some cherry blossoms and other assorted flowering tree around the reflecting pond near the Jefferson Memorial, I've just posted some on my blog. :)
