Oil on Raymar Panel

Discovering the world through the wide eyed innocence of children is one of life's greatest pleasures.  Everything is fresh and new and every day is a new adventure.  

This little girl was exploring a local coffee shop and delighting in the treasure she could spy in these sale baskets.  

I just had the pleasure of watching my grandson ride the metro for the first time...he was mesmerized by the tunnels and other trains going by.  It was magic for him...therefore magic for me.  

I guess the moral here is to cherish the simple things in life.


  1. A good reminder and an awfully cute painting!! Great job on the basket and striped stockings. So sweet!

  2. You certainly have a knack for picking the precious moments of childhood - which we can all relate to! Love her little stripy leggings, too! Enchanting!

  3. Wonderful autumn palette! I bet you had lots of fun painting this one!

  4. Definitely, cherishing the "simple things in life" can be the most precious moments. You've captured it beautifully here!


Yayyy!!! Thanks for commenting!
