Schools Out..Time to Focus on My Art!

I do have to admit though, that I will miss teaching the children... I have learned so much from them and my need to be humbled by them. Have met many awesome teachers over the years too. Recently, I am doing a number of still life paintings. Love painting florals...if I am using real flowers I have a window of time in which to render them before their bloom fades. So it is with children. There is a window of time to appreciate their innocence and delight w all things. The little things in life can sometimes remind us of the bigger things.
