These paintings are beautiful.  My favorite is the first one.  It's so simple, yet so striking and thought provoking.

Your granddaughter will be so proud to have your work for her friends to see.

Thank you Mea, my daughter in law suggested that I paint the frame in a lighter color. My hubby did the frames a while ago and I paint them with chalk paint and wax it.

What a wonderful and diverse array of paintings for folks to see! My favorites are #2 and the front door paintings. And how clever of your husband to make the frames and how clever of you to paint them!! Can't wait to hear how the show goes!  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers,
Sharon
