Thinking about getting back to painting.

I am tired!
I have been working every day
(except Sunday)
for the past 2 weeks!

This is not good.

It makes me grouchy!!

So I asked not to be put on the work schedule so much.

Only 3 days a week, please.

I have a passion, It is to paint.

When I don't paint I get grouchy.

I painted this picture for my husband a few years ago.

It is a favorite. I asked him what he'd name his boat...if he had one.

He said "Donna Lynn", so I named the boat in the painting the same.

This is a painting I did of the sand dunes near our house.

This woman is looking for her long lost love to return.

I really enjoyed painting this one.
The pot turned out so nice.

I painted this for a co worker at the school where I worked.

Her name is "Miss Moon" and she asked me to paint a
Van Gough type painting of the moon for her "moon" collection!!

I've got to get back to the canvas!!
Yup, I do!!


  1. Yes, you most certainly do, Donna. That's an order, so do it. should!

    I really like all of them, but the sand dunes and vase of flowers are my favorite. The moon is also special.

  2. Your work is just wonderful Donna.
    Hope you have more time to devote
    to it in the future. My favorite
    is the sand dunes.

  3. You are a very talented artist. Hope you can get back to your painting. Love & blessings from NC!

  4. You are VERY talented! You must get back to it :D Hope to see your new work of art soon!

    Love Gemma x

  5. Those are great, Donna! You definitely have talent.

  6. really do have a talent! AMAZING paintings. I pray you are able to get back to painting soon. Don't you just love how God blesses each of us with something so different?
    Have a great day!

  7. Oh my.... so beautiful! I hope you find time to paint more very soon. I use to dabble in it, never lessons, and found it very relaxing. My husband is a great encourager and I wish I had more time to paint. I will. I quilt and now with my blog and keeping our home up here, there's just not enough hours in the day for me. However, for you..... I do hope you find the time.

  8. Oh how I love to paint as well...but haven't done so in a long time...however, now I have a canvas, oil paints, and brushes and am ready to start!!! I am used to painting with acrylics I am nervous (but excited) about starting with the oils! I always loved to watch Bob Ross paint on TV!

  9. I like them all, but especially the vase with flowers. That turned out just like I would like to have a vase of flowers in my home. Yes, you should get busy painting more!
