Go Smell the flowers- paintings of children, daffodils, flowers

"Go Smell the Flowers", 9x7, oil on canvas panel

I have been so busy lately that it's been hard for me to find time to either paint, dance, or smell the flowers!

Today, I worked all morning on things I don't like to do, made a dinner that could cook all day, turned on Whisperings solo piano music, and made up my mind to finish this painting which I started two weeks ago! The title for the painting was easy, and as it turns out, there is also a book by the same name, "Go Smell the Flowers". The book is by a couple who resigned from corporate to see the places they’d always wanted to see.

I can totally relate. It is so important to take a break from the rat race in order to connect or re-connect with all that's important in life, which for me has always been God, family and health.

I'm glad I took a break today and finished this painting!
