A milestone....

Happy Saturday!
My daughter reached a major milestone yesterday.  She took her last high school exam and she has graduated!!!  I'm so proud of her, she's worked so hard. She's looking for a job now to start saving for college and her upcoming trip to Europe.  My son keeps asking if he can have her room when she's gone for extra lego storage.  

Here's what I've been painting this week.  It's been good therapy.  I've had a few teary moments thinking about my baby girl growing up and moving on.  

Sending love to you and yours, Happy Painting!

ps: Misty's class rocks!  She is so amazing, I'm so glad I signed up for her class!

The Graduate♥

  6. love to the milestoning in your family and heart! + adoring your art...xox

  7. Ah yes, I remember the day a few years ago when my daughter graduated from hihg school. Time goes so fast - and then it is the next phase, and somehow we have to let go - and somehow we manage to. Your art is wonderful, delicate and subtle, quite pensive and contemplative.

  8. They are beautiful paintings and the photo of your daughter would make an awesome one too!
    Congratulations to her!

  9. Beautiful art, I like the colors you used. And congrats to your daughter!

  10. Beautiful! I love the portraits and their expressions. My daughter started college last fall. I was a bit weapy, but so happy and proud at the same time. :)

  11. Beautiful art work and I must say your daughter is a stunning creation of yours! Kudos to her and wishing her well for future endeavors. xxoo

  12. Congrats to your daughter!! She is gorgeous!! And lovely art as always!!
    You must be such a proud mom!


  13. Congratulations to your daughter, beautiful young woman. I'm with you on creative therapy, great work!

  14. Jenny,
    Congratulations on raising a smart and beautiful girl into such a beautiful woman. She looks so much like you! I'm sure it is bittersweet to think of letting her go, but there are so many adventures to look forward to sharing with her, you won't have much time to look back. Trust me on this!

  15. Your portraits are so beautiful, they have such delicate, peaceful expressions. Your daughter looks like an adorable girl, you must be very proud of her.

  16. Your daughter is just beautiful Jenny! Congratulations to her and to you. It does go by fast...I understand those teary moments. My baby is getting married in October and I am not ready for a quiet empty house. He is our piano player as well, so it's going to get awfully quiet.

    Your works are really special...I stopped for quite a while on the prayer circle one. Wow. Such a moving piece.

  17. Beautiful paintings and a beautiful daughter! See you tomorrow on PPF.

  18. Aww what a gorgeous graduate, I'm joining in the happy twirling too :)
    Letting go though, not so twirly or easy!
    As always beautiful beautiful girls.xx

    I just found my way over here and love your paintings! You are very talented!
