A Celebration of Gratitude

'Amber and Lola'
mixed media on Richeson WC paper

This week's challenge on LIFEBOOK2023 was to 'celebrate gratitude' and 'garden of gratitude".
I could think of painting nothing else than the photo my friend, from afar, shared on her FB page this week.  It is one of her friends, Amber, who helps her at her farm/ranch. 
She is unable to do a lot of the work that needs attention - due to illness.
I am so grateful for the HELP that she receives from her friends - it allows her to 
stay in her place and keep her critters - which are everything to her.
I can totally understand wanting to STAY where you are and continue
to enjoy and live with your animals in any way possible. I would be the same way.
Here's to you Amber and all the others who help keep the 'boat afloat'.
And here is my practice piece of background painting with color and floral suggestions...
