Enjoy the moment :)

Hi everyone :)

Still busy making canvasses for my show that is coming up next Friday :)




My Mother-in-Law had this Norman Rockwell calendar from 2004 and I tore out some of the images to use on these :)
 








 









 











Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
