Sorrow


This is a painting I did for myself called "Sorrow". I have had this sketched on paper for probably a year and have finally painted it. I painted this lovely lady to be sad for me. There is so much tragedy and sadness in the world that sometimes I feel guilty for having fun knowing that someone somewhere is suffering. So this is my little lady that can pray and be sad for me all day and night while I carry on.

And carry on we did....




We spent the day at a large mall North of St. Louis. This mall has a small indoor playground , ice skating rink, and fun fair type rides. The kids drove some mini go carts. Rose was NOT a good driver. It scared me to death.




She is my wild child. This is her jumping on the super web like spider man. Here she is attempting to do a flip on it. scary.


I did paint a few more paintings this week. I am just not sure what I am going to do with them yet. :/ They are different. I have one that I plan to put up tonight if I have time. If I do I will post it here too.

Hope you all had an interesting weekend.

Oh, I love your "sorrow" painting. We must both be feeling a little melancholy this week. I am posting another one today of a girl looking longingly out the the window.

She's got a heart for acrobats! I can feel your fear while she is enjoying herself without fear!
Thank you so much for the care thoughts behind your painting! I can feel like she is praying for me and it comforts me.
Don't feel guilty for enjoying your healthy time together. This is what you are here to do! I am so pleased to know you are enjoying yourself with your family, it is fantastic news and cheers my soul to see such happy photo's! Your go girl!

I think it is a perfect idea. There's so much meanness in this world. I sometimes think my dog Otto does this for me. He worries about everything so I don't have to.

Looked like you guys had a lot of fun!

Love the painting. That is awesome that Rose is not scared. I bet you were enough for both of you. I was not as adventurous as a youngster....and still am not. No bungy jumping for me...ever!!!
