I have started painting again!

My life will be different now that John is gone.  I have to learn to fill my days (weekends) and nights with things I love to do.  I hadn't painted since the end of October or beginning of November.  With packing up the house and moving and then losing John, I had so many things to do.  I have finally put Christmas away (about a week ago) and I needed something to do that I really enjoyed.  I have been knitting a baby blanket for my niece, Devyn's new baby due on the 16th (this Thursday!!).  I can do that while watching TV though.  I decided on Saturday to take my paints, paper, brushes, etc. out and try my hand at painting again.  I painted two paintings.  One was of a field with a very storm sky (angry almost) with 2 silos in the distance.  The other was of a pomegranate whole and a sliced in half pomegranate.  I was very happy the way they turned out, but I especially love the pomegranate painting.  Next I want to paint a very colorful rooster.

Here are my paintings:

I will be painting more things in the future.  It was very soothing and calming for me to create these paintings.

Your paintings are beautiful, Sherri. Do you have specific places in mind to hang them? The pomegranate looks like a perfect pop of color for a kitchen!

Wow! You are really talented, Sherri. I really admire your strength and perseverance.

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
