Ducklings

It's been a fast six months since we saw our granddaughters last -- and already the two have grown INCHES -- and are reading, counting, singing, dancing, playing junior monopoly, painting, performing! Where does the time go? It seems only yesterday that they were as tiny as these ducklings -- and now, they are well on their way into childhood ... cuddly babes no longer.

My thanks to my dear friend, Fossibear, for allowing me to use his photograph as inspiration for painting these ducklings. His fabulous photo,www.flickr.com/photos/fossibear/7229144766/in/faves-linfrye/ was of a precious gathering of baby swans … I turned these beauties into baby ducklings and painting them in the marshland I love. Thank you, Lutz for the inspiration!!! Please stop by his photostream to see some incredible, beautiful work!!

We’re off to the recital with our own precious grands ….still as cuddly and adorable as ever!

Hope you have a great weekend!

if your grands perform beautifully like your ducklings, then it will be a great success! Your painting is a feast for the eyes and I'm sure your grands will be the same for you!

It is like these are your little ducklings that are visiting you. Great job on this!!! I love the soft look of them.

Have a great Memorial Day Weekend and enjoy the kids!
