30 in 30 Crofter's Window – Day 9

Today’s painting is from photographer Margaret Battye of PaintMyPhoto.  She called it Crofters Window Decoration – I had no idea what a Crofter was so once again The Google to the rescue, this time with a “teaching moment.”

Crofting is a form of Scottish Highland farm residence created in the 1800s.  A pretty meager and dismal existence given the weather and poor growing conditions.   Lots of history behind this topic. 

Suffice it to say that even in difficult situations. . . 

Someone took the time to place a beautiful geranium on a windowsill.  
Someone took the time to make a stunning photograph and 
Someone decided to paint it for the rest of you!  
Art is everywhere.

Thanks for sharing the journey.  Enjoy - life is joy we make one moment at a time,
