old enough

(5x7)
Me and the Atlantic Ocean: a self-portrait for my 50th birthday.

Beautiful, Laura - and beautiful Laura, it's just how I picture you with the sea behind you - is today the day? Wishing you a wise and wonderful decade, and keep on doing it!

What a self portrait! I'm amazed you can do this with water color. Brilliant.

Happy Birthday, Laura.

Happy Birthday Laura! nice job on your portrait -- do you do one each year? It's a great idea...and fun to see change.

Wonderful, Laura! Happiest of birthdays--you're (as my grandmother would say) just a babe in the woods! This is a lovely self-portrait. You're on a roll here.

HAPPY HAPPY Birthday, Laura! As they say, "You're old enough to know better but young enough to try!" Have a wonderful trip...may the winds always fill your sails and lead you to beautiful places.

Nicely done as always. I picture you like this too, with the sea as your backdrop.

You should paint with your eyes closed sometime to make us 'non-talented" people feel better!!

Love your work, and no, you don't make me feel bad!

Happy, Happy Birthday

Hi Laura,

Both you and the painting are beautiful. I think it's too bad we have to get worried about the decade birthdays. 30, 40, 50 -- before
numbers we would just have been alive.
What a good thought.

You are great.

Have a super year. Happy Birthday.

Take care,

Barbara
