In Private Collection
8"H x 10"W Oil on canvas board
This is the latest Daily Paintworks Challenge. Wrap up a present and paint it. Well, as it happens today is my birthday and on Tuesday afternoon a box arrived from my ex-sister-in-law. I opened the box and this lovely present was in it. So I painted the gift box along with the really beautiful card. The card has sparkles on it...I just love anything that sparkles. After a Thai dinner at my son's house tonight with my daughter-in-law and my adorable grandson, age three, we opened presents. In this box there was a beautiful little bird, actually about life size and a wonderful candle with a bird, nest and flowers reverse painted on the glass. Two additions to my collection for future paintings. Although I don't get to see my sister-in-law much anymore, I always think of her fondly and remember the good times we had together when we were as close as true sisters.
