latest effort

24x18 oil on canvas
so this is my latest lady..in progress....fun...i keep going back over and over...as they say..."it's never done til it's overdone"...but i'm sort of sneaking up...my hubby is better..actually thinking about cooking again which is GREAT news for me@!!!!!!!!...after being in total charge of cooking for the past week...i'm acting as his sou chef for a while..in the chopping area..(we're having shrimp and grits tonight)...but he's doing the planning and preparing...and maybe i can get back to painting...the important stuff!!!

heading to a wedding...

without my hubby..he had his shoulder surgery this last tuesday and is still recooping...not in any sort of mood to party so i'm leaving him in the dust...just as well since he's really just happier to be left alone...and of course that's hard for me to do...i have spent some time in the studio however - working on another lady...kind of fun and i'll take a pic tomorrow - even if i'm not quite done.. i gave my painting of joe to his other grandparents and they sounded so happy to have it...that's what makes this fun...

joe..our youngest grand...

14x11 original oil on canvas panel
so here's joe...i thought i'd offer this painting to his other grandparents for their recent anniversary..i kind of like it!! it's a lot bigger than my usual "grand" paintings but something got into me and i had to do it!  we're at the lake..licking our wounds and storing up energy for davey's surgery in four days...we did play a round of golf yesterday at the city course - it was very crowded and we ended up playing with two brothers - we had no idea whether we could even play nine holes but they were very nice fellows - who put up with our golf..davey hitting mostly one-handed and my very erratic play...all of a sudden i'd wing one into the weeds...can't explain it..they say that "golf is an easy game that's hard to play"...and they must have my picture under that dictionary heading...call me "poster child"....

been a while...

"Day Dreaming"
12x12 gallery wrap original oil
i really don't know what i've been doing...not a lot of painting...some...this is my donation to the Gleaners' Food Bank gala fund-raiser being held this month in Indy. i think i'm naming it day-dreaming...any other thoughts or suggestions?...on the 20th, we played in danny dakich's "summer of fun" golf outing benefiting riley hospital...davey probably shouldn't have played because that may have been the final straw for his shoulder...and his surgery looms in 11 days..poor guy is definitely not looking forward to it!..we had a family reunion last weekend - good to see most of the family although a few notables were missing...hated that...i'm planning to tackle my studio..again...and maybe get some stuff done.  my "grand" project has been sitting by the wayside..waiting for me to stop playing golf and take up my brushes again...i love summer! - but the winter will be a productive time for me...promise...
