Peace, Calm, Quiet

...the quote is one of my favourites from namaste cafe so wanted to use it in a mixed media piece to display in my house
check out mix it monthly

My sons and I have been picking lots of blackberries in the nearby field so we made some delicious jam
Happy Paint Party Friday

What a lovely and peaceful piece of art for your home! You are so lucky to have blackberries near you to make jam with! I used to love to pick them when I was a kid but they seem to be hard to find now around here.
