A Loooooong Time

Lilly of the Fields

I have been busy, busy, busy but I feel like I am not getting enough done. Painting has been going slowly. I have always been able to "whip 'em out" but for some reason it is not moving along as quickly as I would like it to but I am determined and will get through this.

Anyway... here is a piece I did about a month ago to loosen up and have some fun,
"Lilly of the Fields." I love goats! Never owned one but I love them just the same.

A dear friend of mine, (who is a best selling and inspirational author, that you must go here to listen to her talk about nurturing creativity on stopped by and when she saw this goat painting , I thought she was going to cry .

"Lilly" she shrieked "it's my goat Lilly!"

Liz, grew up on a Christmas tree farm and had a number of goats and apparently this goat looked just like her all time favorite love, Lilly. Needless to say , I titled this goat painting Lilly of the Fields and it is now on her wall and not mine!

Enjoy it and I will be posting more soon and don't forget to go to TED (which is a fabulous site) and listen to Liz's talk!
