IF:Pet Peeve: Throwing trash out the car window!

When I was growing up there was this commercial ad about "Keeping America Beautiful." They depicted a family on vacation and they were throwing trash out their car window. Standing by the roadside was a Native American the trash landed at his feet. He turned around and had a tear running down his face. I don't know if that would be PC these days but that commercial has been my moral compass. It really bothers me to see people dump trash out of their car window. Recently we were at the drive-thru window at Taco Bell. The people in front of me were throwing their trash out the window onto the driveway. The first time they threw something out I was enraged, then they threw out more stuff while they where waiting to get their food. I couldn't take it any more so I rolled down my window and told them to stop littering. My children think I'm crazy but I just couldn't take it anymore.

More Time

I wish that I had more time to paint and draw. I can totally forget about having time to think about gardening and quilting. How do you manage to fit it all in. Having time for husband and children. My love for reading. I miss being a stay-at-home mom, but I have the best part time job that I could ever wish for. I work for the school district, so I am out when my children are. I guess I should just be thankful for the things I do get to do.

IF: Looking Into The Garden

"She was confined to only look into the garden but never enter"
I was really please with the way this painting came out. My husband keeps asking me what am I going to do with all of the things I've been drawing and painting? I really don't know. I just feel like being creative has been bottle up in me for so long I'm just happy to let some of it out.

The theme for IF and IMT were the same so I couldn't decide where to post each picture, so I posted them together. I hope you like at least one of them.
Inspire Me Thursday:Leap This is the smallest painting I ever attempted. It measures 3x5.
