Gloria J Zucaro's "The Treasure of Time"

Tonight I am linking to Jennifer Mclean's  of The Artist's Playroom challenge of "What do you treasure?"  Of course, the first thing that pops into mind are friends and family, then creating art, then my home, health, etc.  But the more I thought about it, the more I realized how the main thing I wish I had more of and can never get enough of is "TIME". I never seem to have enough time to enjoy all the things I love, people I love and things I want to do.

I am also linking to all my artist friends over at Paint Party Friday.  Thank you to our hostesses, Eva and Kristin.  Be sure to pop in there to see what everyone has been up to in the last week.

This week I received my prize from Patsy over at HeARTworks.  She sent me a wonderful Artist Trading Card with a portrait and lots of blessings.  So fun to hear from Patsy in the Philippines!  Thank you.

  13. This is such an unbelievably marvellous painting, such depth, such detail and the rich colours. And time is a precious thing, so it's a great choice. The older we get the more we treasure it. Thank you for your nice comments on my Treasures pic.
