A Surprise Painting


Back in November, I posted some photographs of autumn leaves that I took in my yard. My friend, Marlene, of Marlene's Musings emailed and asked if I would mind if she did a painting from these photos. Of course, I was more than happy to tell her to do a painting.
A few weeks ago, I received a package in the mail. What a pleasant surprise!! Marlene mailed me the painting she did from the photograph. It is now hanging on my gallery wall. Wasn't that just the nicest thing for her to do? I have posted the photograph that I put on my blog back in November and the painting that I received in the mail. I think Marlene did a great job of painting what she saw in the photograph. Beautiful. I love the painting and I am so proud to have it hanging in my home.
Marlene is a self-taught artist and makes watercolor paintings, ACEOs, sketches, colored pencil drawings and needle felting. She does very nice artwork. Go to her blog and take a look for yourself. Marlene is a sweet lady and I am so happy to be her friend.

Great job on the painting, and what a delightful surprise for you!
I love the photo, when leaves are that red they don't seem real!
