One of the best parts of being a Decorative Artist is the friendships I have made thru Chapters, Seminars, Classes, Conventions; even E-mails and FaceBook Groups over the past 28 years…. lasting wonderful friendships!

Lynn of Painting Thyme Needfuls, and I have never met in person but are connected thru Decorative Art.  We have a kinship with similar taste and style with our paintings, blogs and home style.  We have that Decorative Painting bond…’s like glue.

Our friendship actually started on FaceBook, I came across her beautiful work on Tole Painters Unite.  Lynn was posting a step by step guide to paint a beautiful Kim Hogue design, I was instantly drawn in and she had so many beautiful comments…..I quickly requested her friendship!

And then I was thinking…..I wonder if Lynn would paint a design that I have created and post a step by step guide?  I hesitated, thinking I was being forward to ask, and I thought , and thought and thought about it and then I  thought again…….why not ask? ….. and forwarded a message to Lynn,  she graciously accepted and chose the acrylic pattern Pantry Sweets.

Lynn finds the most awesome surfaces and picked a vintage griddle for Pantry Sweets….and painted and painted and painted!

You may find Lynn’s blog (here).  A step by step guide to painting Pantry Sweets….and a wonderful blog to follow.

Gathering with folks whom have the same interests, creates wonderful lasting friendships, whether it be knitting, ceramics, painting or a book club!  Find a hobby today, you will find a friend.

Thank you Lynn for your friendship and sharing your beautiful paintings, you inspire all of us with every brush stroke!
