Yes, it's my birthday. I actually had to add it up in my head today as to the year it was. Let's just say I am closer to 40 than I was last year! It was a good day, lunch out, dinner out, calls in between. I've always loved birthdays, planning my own from an early age. My favorite, I'd have to say my 16th. I got a car. That's enough to stand out. I also didn't pass my driver's test the first time, another reason to remember that year. Ask me why next time you see me. Pretty darn funny, now. This painting is of Mattie on her birthday too. The last one I did in her party hat I entitled "Mattie Turns 30". I guess this year it will be "30 and Holding".
