Life is Bitter, Life is Sweet

Day 8 (day 7 in still in the works) in the 30 paintings in 30 days:

I started something yesterday that I don't normally do and I just didn't get it done. I'll wait till it's done and you'll know what I mean. It's mainly painted for my grandson because we made up a song this summer (he is 2 and told his mom that he wanted to phone me today - I melted when he called). 

This is some bittersweet on its last legs and a vase from Big Lots (I think that's what Donna said). This looks much better in real life. I took this picture at night again. I don't know how you all get your work done and on first thing in the morning. I should have started in December!

Here's the quote and it's from a book on my TO READ list which gets about as much attention as my TO DO list. “It's not hard to decide what you want your life to be about. What's hard, she said, is figuring out what you're willing to give up in order to do the things you really care about.” Shauna Niequist, Bittersweet: Thoughts on Change, Grace, and Learning the Hard Way

Seems appropriate when we are all putting some things aside to invoke change!
