tom dakich memorial golf outing..

so here we are with danny..he was posted on the 17th hole..a par three..and to that point we were even par...while all the young guns were eating up the white tees and posting way under par...so danny's job was to pass out spiced rum and to hit an iron within birdie range...he didn't fail us and we made OUR FIRST BIRDIE!!!!!  for cry-y-y!!!!...such a fun event!!  been a very busy week since then..more tomorrow...

thanks...

I was playing in a guest day today so I didn't get to listen...but apparently my friend danny gave me some wonderful props on his radio show today..he put on a spectacular outing yesterday and he should be very proud of himself for the way he can rally the troops...thanks again to Daniel j. dakich for the kind words....

here's my surprise...

36x24 oil on canvas
so here's what I've been teasing for the past few days..we had a blast today at danny dakich's third annual summer of fun golf outing..this year was dedicated to his dad, tom dakich, who passed away in april very suddenly..i donated a painting of a golf glove..i think I posted it earlier here.. and a giclee on paper of danny guarding Michael Jordan in the early eighties..(I got danny to sign it!)..which alone brought $400 for riley hospital!!..danny's brother, tom, bought my golf glove and they were both very touched by my painting of his dad in his early days of the "junior mafia"..having lost my father so long ago, I know what they are going through..it was a great day of golf..i don't know what we thought we were going to do out there..most of the teams were young studs, playing from the whites and birdying almost every hole!!..our team of diane, nate, Davey and I ended up four under...not too shabby for us but certainly not in the money...fun was had by all anyway..

maybe just one more...

we are playing in a special golf outing today...

painting on main street....



so I went up to the carmel gallery walk..lots of fun and lots of people..at one point I had my boat painting turned upside down..i sometimes do that to paint shapes instead of things....and this little boy came along and was so confused!..i'm so glad I went..got these two paintings accomplished and met some wonderful people..it really is a small world!..these are now in beautiful omega frames, both 12x12 and available at the INSPIRE studio gallery at 15 e main st. in carmel...the shadow you see at the top of the boat painting is from the top of the panel holder on my easel..no worries...
