Dear friend and fellow church member Carol Childress(blog: Choose Joy) painted this beautiful mural in my son Caleb's room. I orginally didn't plan on the golfer resembling Caleb but as Carol painted it just kinda happened~ I love that it looks like him! Carol is a very talented painter and I enjoyed watching this boring drab wall become a beautiful work of art. I walked into the room to comment on her work and she said, "Grab a brush and help"....NOT!! Carol makes painting look so easy, but believe me I know better. I have no talent when it comes to art. Carol was explaining to me how she learned how to paint her trees from Bob Ross. I have to laugh at this, because I so love Bob Ross and would spend many a Saturday afternoons watching him paint his "happy little trees". My husband (Brian) would go crazy and never understood how I could watch him, but his voice was so calming and he was an amazing artist. I believe Bob Ross is now painting the most beautiful pictures in heaven and I think there's a spot reserved for Carol right next to him.
Thank you Carol for sharing your special talent with me and my family!
