Flower Bouquet from Friends



On Monday there was a terrible storm here in Baltimore and we lost power all evening. Luckily we have a generator which illuminated part of our house, so we invited our (powerless!) neighbors who have three small kids to have dinner with us. It was great fun. The next day our neighbors gave me this bouquet to say thank you. It made me so happy and it was so beautiful I felt I had to get out my watercolors and paint it.

  15. Das ist ja total schön, wenn man sich in so einem Notfall als Nachbarn gegenseitig aufeinander verlassen kann und sich beisteht. Ich kann mir sehr gut vorstellen, was Dir der hübsche Blumenstrauß Deiner Nachbarin bedeutet, den Du so schön und lebendig gemalt hast.
