"Sushi Marie"

6x6 oil on panel

so this is Sushi Marie... gone to heaven now..for my friends Roberta and here's what been happening lately... i had such a sore body for some reason on saturday...then i thought back..on thursday i drove to a tennis match in carmel..where we got our butts kicked!!.. they are so lucky to have so many gals to choose from..our second round, we had to face a pair of fresh recruits..who REALLY kicked our butts!!..then friday.. i stacked a half rick of wood that i made davey save for me so he wouldn't have to do it all.. then a long bike ride into a 20 mile-an-hour head wind..."it's ok honey..we'll have a tailwind on the way home!!"..then we played nine at harrison..we were thinking it very well could be our last chance with the weather changing!..  davey was scoring so over after nine..and i kept telling him.."your decision whether we quit or go on.."  he decided to quit with good memories.. he said he'd be so angry if he went 37-44 so we just sailed off into the golf sunset..i did ok as well.. after bogey on the first three holes, i ended up with a 41..not too shabby!.. so i guess i really used some serious muscles over a couple days!!..

meanwhile.. i continue to see my "Celebration" painting on the cover of LIFE magazine.. i snagged that image off the tv and worked several days on it before the magazine issue even came out!!..i guess that was a very memorable and iconic image..and hopefully folks will want to capture it for their favorite cubs fan.. christmas maybe?..

in progress...

so we've been celebrating for days after the cubs won the series!!..we've watched the game over and over and this scene of the celebration scrum on the mound struck me!!.. i told davey.."run that back!!".."I want to paint this!!".. so this painting has been in the works for several days..sneaking up on it.. and apparently great minds think alike since this image was just on the cover of Life!!.. if a tad different.... my piece is 36x36 and will take a while to finish.. and then i don't know what.. maybe make prints?..maybe not?...i would be interested to know who all might be interested...


so this painting has been accepted into Randy Higbee's 6x6 exhibition in Orange County, California.  happy to be a part of it!!.. exhauasted from staying up til 1:30 watching the election returns...praying that our country will take a turn for the better!...and now.. back to working on some cubbie stuff!!
