“Inspiration is a guest that does not willingly visit the lazy.”

Little Pink House – 24″ x 48″ Acrylic Painting
Saturday was a wonderful day! I happened to be hanging out at Our Favorite Place, a gallery where I have paintings, when this painting sold! Yay!!!
I was commissioned to paint this one, then before I even started it, the lady fell into an unexpected financial bind and I let her out of the commitment. I decided to paint it anyway, to stretch my wings and paint large. It’s from a photo of a little pink house in Barbados. I have always loved it and am tickled that it is now loved by someone new. I feel very blessed!
About Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, the Russian classical composer best known for the Nutcracker and Swan Lake ballets, was renowned for his passionate melodies and for bringing Western music into the Russian tradition. He was born in Kamsko-Votkinsk in 1840. He taught music until a widow offered her financial patronage, then retired to the country to compose full time. He never met his benefactor. He died in 1893, just after the first performance of his Sixth Symphony, the “Pathétique.”
