“I once had a rose named after me and I was very flattered. But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalogue: no good in a bed, but fine up against a wall"...Eleanor Roosevelt

Never heard this quote before - pretty funny. Can you imagine the uproar if Hillary or Michelle said it today?

I really like this one Faye. You are gaining confidence with your strokes. I love the colors in the shadow. Nice design too.

Thanks so much everyone! I appreciate the comments.

Vicki Shuck said...

Wow, Faye, look at that brushwork!!

Paula Cravens said...

I love the quote. Who could not love a terrific first lady with a great sense of humor?

FCP said...

Thanks Vicki, I'm trying to work on minimizing those pesky brushstokes.
And, yes, Paula, I agree. A sense of humor is essential!
Keep painting--the two of you inspire me,
