Friday's Special Moment of Gratitude

I have been taking a wonderful photography class which will end this week.  Several of our assignments have had us refer to our inspiration file of pictures in order to complete the assignment.  I have learned so much about myself and my photography that have decided to create an inspiration file for my paintings as well.  The above painting will be the first to be a part of my file.  When I look at it I remember where I was and what I was doing when I painted it.  I remember how relaxed I felt as I painted and how proud I was when I completed it.  It felt special to me and still does.  It inspires me to continue painting and to push myself to get better.  I think that is what an inspiration file is supposed to do.
This week my list of things that I grateful for could go on and on.  I am especially grateful for the incredible sunny and breezy day we had today.  It was perfect convertible weather so the top came down and the music was turned up.  Tomorrow it is going to rain again but at least we had today to remind us that spring is just around the corner.  I am also grateful for all of the support I get from my online friends both new and old.  I am so excited every time I read a comment or get an email from someone I have never met but consider a friend.  I have learned so much from so many people and I want to thank all of you.  And last but not least I am so excited that a Panera Bread opened five minutes from my house.  It will be a great place to meet friends for coffee or maybe even go and draw a little!
