If you have a bucket list, and have not visited this amazing place, I encourage you to add it to the list. As with the Grand Canyon, neither photographs nor paintings can depict the experience of "being there".

She has a wonderful whimsical side to her, being especially fond of fairies. So I elected to use that as the theme for this painting. She is the Fairy here, reaching for the Star that she will surely become. We will miss her, but she promises to grace us as a visiting musician from time to time. This was a fun project for me, as I too, have a whimsical side.

This house sits on a hillside (in the middle of over 5 acres) with a walkout basement in the back. Incredible tiered landscaping (pond, patios, decking, etc) /that they did all themselves. There is a barn on the property as well. This is the front view.....wish I could have painted the entire place.

I always ask my spouse for help with perspective. I appreciate his input. He thought it looked good. Also asked him what else I should provide. I had been thinking about animals. We talked about it and decided that since there are no fences, goats might be the answer. You see the beginning of a doe with her babe near the pond. More or less to come, depending on my mood!
Music and books have sparked my inspiration to paint in the past few years. Currently, I am learning "What A Wonderful World". This painting signifies the Wonderful World we live in. "I see leaves of green..................skies of blue..........!" How about you?

I painted the background the exterior color of his garage, but left the table the natural stain of the wood. It was quite fun to work on. I did get the clock idea from the images I saw on the internet. Most of them had 5 for every number. Clever.
Okay....so presented it to him today and he really liked it. Here's to you, Davion! So glad you were born!
