Today I’m sharing yet another watercolor painting of this season’s acorns.  I framed this sketch and presented it with a small jar of acorns to my daughter for her 25th birthday.  She’s a teacher, and I thought these small gifts would look nice on her desk at school — a reminder of her work preparing the soil for her students to thrive and grow.

    What a lovely gift–simple and from the heart! Your staging for the photo is, as always, a delight!

    Your sketches would make beautiful gift cards….hint, hint….

    I can sense the love that went into this watercolor. I could only wish for a mom like you. B

    I would certainly buy gift tags of your paintings. I have birthday gifts to buy in Oct, May, August, Feb., April. couldn’t you give it a try like on pinterest? If you’re looking for something new for time instead of blogging. But please keep an occasional blog. I do love hearing about your world!

    Simply lovely. I was going to ask – I’m heading back up to Kansas this month and will be in Council Grove. Would you like me to see if I can find you some of those large bur oak acorns from the famous tree? I’d be happy to do so.
