I am participating with Pink Saturday to share my pink post. You can visit www.howsweetthesound.typepad.com to visit lots of wonderful pink posts as well as celebrate Father's Day.
Let's join Bentley, my Studio Assistant, in the garden to look for inspiration for the Moms.
I bought some beautiful pink and rose Peony flowers at my favorite flower shop - Trader Joe's.
Finding inspiration . . . .
Love the way the pink and rose flowers look with the green birdcage.
I decided to paint a pink bicycle with a green background Welcome sign. Since my vintage bicycle is blue I used photos of my Friend, Cathy's, pink bicycle for the painting.
There . . . . Everywhere . . . . .
I wanted the bicycle to be very pretty for the Moms, but a little bit rustic since it will be on the door of their cabin in the mountains in California. I added burlap ribbon to add a touch of rustic.
I also tried a little "mixed-media" and glued words on that say "journey" "joy" and "laugh".
The note on back of the painting to the Moms reads:
"Be filled with joy and laughter . . . life is a beautiful ride".
"May the God of steadfastness . . .grant you to live in harmony with one another." Romans 15:5
Thank you for stopping by. I love hearing from you and sincerely appreciate your visits, comments, e-mails and those of you who follow my blog. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to see me paint something special.
Have a lovely week. Blessings, Erin
