Bird ATC

“Happiness always looks small while you hold it in your hands, but let it go, and you learn at once how big and precious it is.”
– Aleksei Peshkov

Never take happiness for granted.  If you find it slipping away, you better get busy and get it back!  We just get this one life, ya know.  :)

Bird ATC – 2.5″ x 3.5″ Watercolor

Here’s another little spring ATC from the old exchange.    I am going to paint this weekend.  I can’t wait to have new art to share!  Hubby is improving, since he’s been home.  I’m taking him for a 1 week check up tomorrow, to ensure he’ll be good to go for the long weekend.  YAY!

About Aleksei Peshkov

Russian social realist author Aleksei Peshkov, known as Maxim Gorky, was so esteemed that his birthplace, Nizhny Novgorod, was renamed Gorky in his honor. He was born in 1868. His parents died when he was young, and he left his home at age 12. He was arrested in the late 1880′s as a revolutionary. His writing, including his best-known novel, The Mother, portrayed a decadent society and immense poverty. He became disillusioned after the Russian Revolution, feeling Lenin’s Communism was little better. He died in 1936.
