Butterfly for Betty



Oh what a blissful day this has been... I got the house to myself for FOUR glorious hours of peace and quiet (I love my family dearly but sometimes I need my time! LOL). I spent those hours finishing up my painting dedicated to Betty Bowen, my dear friend who passed away two weeks ago. I wanted to use bright colors to represent her life full of love and many bright colors.

I hope you enjoy it!

Happy Creating Everyone!

So sorry to hear about your friend, Betty. Ironically, I had a best friend, Betty, who died in 1990. She was also a wonderful artist and mentor. The painting dedicated to your friend is beautiful.
