"My Favorite Things", 5x7, oil on board, by Maryanne Jacobsen

"My Favorite Things", 5x7, oil on board

Julie Andrews once sang about her favorite things. Since my ability to sing is rather limited, I painted them instead! Sunflowers, warm sunshine, a good book, the feeling of grass between my toes- what more could I want?

This is the third painting that I did of myself in my back yard from photos that my hubby took of me one day when I wasn't looking:0) I hope that's not egotistical! I just wanted to get more hat lady practice in, since people seem to enjoy my ''hat lady" paintings.

Add me to the list of people who love your hat ladies! This is so pretty! The colors and the composition and the mood all create such an enchanting happy feeling. Great painting!

Love the colors! I think you should have another photo shoot in your garden and have your husband take shots from various angles. These are lovely paintings and I can see why they would be popular.
