I spent all day yesterday working on a large painting and by the time I was done I had lost my daylight and couldn't photograph this small one. The title has special meaning over here but has pretty much nothing to do with the painting : ) ...except for some reason it seems fitting to me. My oldest step-daughter (16) sings a song to my son (2.5) that includes the words "shine out." Every time she stays with us, my son asks "shine out, shine out?" even though these are by no means the main words of the song. It's cute. I enjoyed painting the rose. I plan to try more roses today and post them this evening.
