A Different Kind of Secret Admirer

Friday morning someone left a page from a magazine (top pic.) for me. It is the hopeless romantic in me that has interpretted this kind gesture (obviously from a friend and supporter) as a secret admirer of my art work. The mystery person drove up to my house and asked my babysitter, who happened to be outside, to give this page to me. Who is this mystery person/secret admirer/wonderful supporter? And what do they want for me to do with this beautiful picture of camellias? Clues: a female, drives a tan SUV, has brown hair, they read Southern Accents magazine, they know I like to paint flowers. This pretty picture and thoughtful act was a great way to start my day. I was motivated, intrigued, excited, curious, felt loved and special.

In response to this mystery surprise, I decided to post this video of a painting of mine that is of similar colors and petals. It is of a peony.

I would love to know who this wonderful person is, so please reveal yourself. In the meantime, we can all be secret/or not admirers and offer encouragement and feel goods to those that we admire whether it be an artist, teacher, spouse, child or parent. I know if you are a blogger, you are a great admirer to many and often encourage and support others. I would be such a lonely painter if I didn't have my blogger friends. Have a great week!


  1. This is so beautiful! And great that we get to see it stage by stage too. I wonder if you will ever find out who left it for you :0)

  2. What a wonderful way to start a day, it really triggers the fantasy and the romanticist hidden in every woman!
    Beautiful your painting of the Peonia, quite difficult, but you succeeded wonderfully.

  3. Wow. Its so great to have a secret admirer. I hope you find out who she is. :)


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave your thoughts. I love hearing from you!
