My Secret Garden

"Secret Garden"
7" x 8" acrylic and collage on canvas
Available in my Etsy Shop here


Here's what blossomed out of my head and through my fingers today...my "Secret Garden". It's somewhere I can always go to feel peaceful and content. It's a happy little place.

I'm getting the cookbook below for Maisie this Christmas. Not that SHE will be cooking up a storm for ME in the kitchen...but I will be for her. Maisie loves her treats and I wanted to get a really good book with organic recipes. I found this one while I was browsing through one of my favorite magazines, Doggie Aficionado. They have some great holiday gift ideas in their Fall issue.

I have a sneaky feeling though that James will be fighting Maisie over some of these goodies...hee hee.

Hi Linda! Love your new painting! The cookbook is awesome..... Maisie will love her treats. I made frozen dog treats for Otis this summer and he was so excited when I'd give him one.
BTW.... you're it! Yup.... I was tagged and now I'm tagging you. Don't feel obliged but the rules are on my blog.
