At looooooonnnng last-"My Paradise" is done!

So, here's the finished product everyone!  Now take into account that I'm not a professional photographer.  I have to get some pro pics taken by Brady Donley.  At least I've got to get a hold of him first as he's often running all over the world taking fabulous pics of golf courses, Antarctica, Africa, etc.   As you can see this could be straighter but it was windy today and Char was having a hard time holding onto the painting while I tried to take some pics for my blog.

It has all the elements I want in Heaven, EXCEPT for my family and a huge body of glorious water to go swimming in (shark free, of course).  I am very happy about how it has turned out and even happier that it's all done now.  I can start on my large mosaic for my kitchen.  That will be my little treat.  Then it's on to the paintings that I have promised to do for others.

Oh, if you want to see the steps to this painting you can go back in the blog and watch the process.


  1. Oh how good a feeling it is to have a job finished. It's the looking forward to the next one that's always so exciting. The mosaic sounds like fun.

  2. Yes. I had to walk by my broken china every time I went over to work on the painting. It was calling out, "We're ready to go! Why aren't you?"

  3. Wonderful. It looks like heaven to me.

  4. Thanks so much. It was a journey and as I send before it was all I could do to keep working on the poppies around the edge. It was a daunting task for me.
