Live and let live


A little 5 x 5 canvas......I'm calling it Live and Let Live.....I wish people would practice that and not worry so much about what others are doing. If it works for them, let them be.

On a brighter note, I attended my granddaughter's first band concert.

Cailee is on the right and her second cousin, Alyssa is on the left. They dressed alike, isn't that cute? They both play the sax. It brought back so many memories of when I played in band......then my son Derek (Cailee's Daddy) and now Cailee. Time flies!! I just don't know where the years have gone!

Oh those dresses are so sweet! I've been painting on some smaller size canvases myself and it is a lot harder doing things miniature size I'm finding.. so kudos to you for getting such detail in your composition in such a small space.

The new painting...I love! I wish I could manage to paint smaller portraits, I just don't seem to have the control you do...practice I guess:)
Those 2 little girls look like fresh picked flowers.
