The Red Geranium Painting:
Summer Siesta Geraniums
14X14, Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
More Than Just a Cozy Little House
What an honor to be featured on one of my favorite blogs, Cozy Little House, this week, for the painting Summer Siesta Geraniums. I’ve been reading Cozy for as long a I can remember, even before the day its author did something almost no cottage and decorating blog had ever done before. She wrote an entry about the end of her marriage. Thinking it was a private post only for her viewing, she accidentally hit the “publish” button.
From that moment, Cozy became a place that people from around the world could come for an honest reflection of what life is like behind the chintz curtains and polished perfection. The author, Brenda, has always been an incredibly gifted writer and photographer. She has taken her gifts one step further and created a safe place for her followers to share life’s challenges, and also to know they are not alone in some of the toughest situations we can face. Other nationally famous decorating bloggers have since followed suit, and a new movement of facing life head on behind the scenes seems to be developing as a result. Because many of these blogs have followers in the thousands and hundreds of thousands, the impact is immense.
Thank you so much Brenda for sharing your love of color and life
with people for so many years! What a beautiful place to land.
