A Boat Load of Boats

Pin It
Birthday Boats - 27 individual 6" x 6" paintings
Here are all of the paintings that I gave away at my 50th party on Saturday night! They were a hit and certainly worth every hour it took to create them. It was an an amazing evening and I had an absolutely wonderful time! Thank you to my adorable husband and three boys for everything ... not to mention the 50 friends who joined us! I am so blessed to have such wonderful family and friends and as I said on Saturday night ... you all make my life complete!

P.S. Actually I should mention that I am not even 50 yet ... I have another week!

Ok. you should take this boat show on the road. Surely your friends wouldn't mind loaning them back! Or maybe, you might paint another 27! Seriously, they are fabulous, and I love seeing them all side by side!

Leslie, I have been coming to your blog almost every day now and the excitement is like opening a gift!

Carolina said...

Wow, Leslie, thank you for posting all your paintings. It's amazing, what else can I say?
How did you decide who would get what? Did your guests decided themselves? Was is a matter of chance? (how silly are these questions? I'm very curious, that's it!)
Congratulations again and again!
