Receiving gifts is something we all enjoy. But on the other hand, the warm glow that follows giving can be more enjoyable.
Have you ever been excited about giving a gift you created, but then wonder if it will disappoint the recipitent of the gift?
I have worked hard on a watercolor painting for an extended family member. His birthday is next month and I am anxious to give it to him.
Several months ago he sent me pictures of an old dilapidated house. It was actually the home where he lived as a child with his brothers and sisters, all 10 of them, and his mom and dad.
This picture of this old house became a watercolor painting project for the last few weeks. As you can tell by the picture, I had to use my imagination to make the house into the home he remembers.
This is my interpretation of “The Darby Home”
I will have it framed and give it to him soon. I am so excited.
