Best birthday gift ever

My friend’s daughter painted this picture for my birthday. The back of the painting reads (in different coloured crayons) “The Beach.  Birthday Happy Jessie, [scribble scribble] Kaileen”. (I asked her what the scribble spelled and she told me I could ignore it.) I looove beaches and will hang this in my studio where I can glance at it for an escape anytime I please.

Kaileen sets rules for herself sometimes, like “I will only use four colours” which is what she chose to do for my painting here. What a lovely addition to my art collection.

Thanks Kaileen!

Tasty challenge:

I challenge all of you to NOT go bake cupcakes now… and if you fail you must share some with me.
