resurrection stuff....

it's all about the resurrection painting!! - today i drove my friend moon to indy for chemo.  it was all the way up to carmel so it was a great excuse to pop in my gallery up there and hand out some peanut brittle.  they said that just today i sold a resurrection print!!  yeah!@!!!...and i just happened to have an extra in the car so i slapped that up with my blessings!! - then back to chemo where we met the nicest gal...her name was bobbi and she was waiting on her hubby who was having chemo as well.  margot and i had the best chat with her.  she's been through so much trauma in her life and has the most resilient spirit...a real inspiration!!..then on to tom wood ford where i delivered another resurrection giclee.  the gal seemed to love it and was anxious to surprise her son-in--law for christmas!! - i love that part...on my way out i ran into a huge IU fan who wanted to know what all the commotion was...passed out a few cards and went on my way.  moon got really good news from her doc so all in all it was a really good day!!! on to our girls' christmas party!!  i love my friends!!!

"Sleepy Golden"

8x8 original oil on gallery wrap canvas
so i finally got back to my decorating...all done!!! - but oh we struggled with the lights on the tree - we have these big  lights that give the tree an old-fashioned look and we love them but they were constantly blowing a fuse!! - very frustrating!! - so finally, with a little help from a couple of grands, i took all the lights off and started OVER! - split them up and only had two strands on a socket and that was the ticket...yeah....with the early thanksgiving, that started the holiday season off and i don't think i've ever had my christmas decorating done so early!!! now i can concentrate on paintings i need to get done...several things for my gallery in bloomington, some commissions, and just some things for fun...i've gone to the dogs!~ - more tomorrow!!
