heading home..."Peonies and Pears"

 


this is another of the paintings I delivered to the white key gallery a few days ago.. it's 18x18 and another of the ones I set up in my studio...we played vcc again today..with ceej and craig..and although I felt like I played a lot better..my score was the same...odd...and the weather flipped from boiling hot yesterday to quite chilly at times today.. low sixties and when the wind came up..sheesh!!!..but it was still fun to be here and to get the summer started!..i am saying prayers for all the families of those who lost their lives today..what a senseless, horrible act of brutality and pure evil!..

i am so excited!!!!

ok.. so here's what happened today...first of all.. this is one of the paintings ready to go in the summer sale at the white key gallery..it's 40x30 and I absolutely loved painting it!!..today we played valpo CC..and remembered how hard it is to putt here!!.. you NEVER...I mean NEVER want to be above the hole...we felt like we were at augusta national!!...PLUS  my range finder finally bit the dust!.. it has a nine volt battery and one of the terminals came loose.. for the second time...we took it to a jeweler and he managed to fix it.. but it broke again today.. I must be extra clumsy!.. so when we got back to the cottage. I got on the web and contacted the bushnell customer service folks..just to see where to go next.  my new friend, john, was great.. he's going to fix me up!! and I couldn't be happier..there are good folks in the world and every now and then..something happens to reaffirm that fact!!!..

clean windows!!!!!

so I'm posting this painting of ben Hogan again...just because it's golf season...what I really want to say is how thrilled I am with my brand spanking clean windows!!!!!!...these guys were recommended to me by my friends michelle and charlotte...and they were so right!!..the service is hurtbird...(www.hurtbirdwindowcleaning.com  812-345-8389).. the two fellows, Michael and rick are hard-working, friendly, trustworthy ( important since we went on a long bike ride while they were here!!) and very reasonable.. I highly recommend them!!  I only wish I could spend the next week totally spring cleaning.. there is so much more light in our house..or so it seems...love these clean and shiny windows!!!
