I love the colors in this one. Very well done. Dogwood's are my mom's favorite ... you may have inspired me!

Awwww. No more chicks, but oh so nice to see your painting! Very pretty! I like the way you kept the focus full center and the lovely edges loose.

Love the quote.
Although I'm sorry to see the birds grow up (so fast!) I'm happy to see your lovely paintings again!

Gorgeous painting, and glorious quote, Faye! So loose and light-filled. I adore the bit of violet in the shadows.
