Well......since I turned 50 this year!


I thought I'd paint the traditional RED HAT girlie! SHE doesn't look 50 but then, do any of us? NEVER! hahaha

And another little experimental piece in watercolor, acrylics and ink. It turned into a gel pen doodle extravaganza!


Ok, back to watching The Biggest Loser. Boy, there sure are some cryin' men again this season!
G'night,
Darla

Oh Darla thank you for all of the love and support that you have shown to me and my family.

We will miss Sheldon always, and you are right, he will always be with us.

Love Renee xoxo

Thank you all so much! I think I might have confused a few though, but not on purpose. I actually turned 50 in May but so many of my friends/classmates are turning this year that I painted this for us all.
Thanks for all the birthday wishes though.....it's like having a birthday twice! Love that!
