So much to do, work on and get ready for art workshop.. and so, off I go, will follow the curvy brick road to Oz-art-land.. Kerrville TX here I come! in couple days.. and I hope all of ya'll have a great couple weeks!
DC done.. just put up some roasts & fish last night.. labeled what & date.. serving size is a given around here.. what-ever I freeze, has it's purpose.. big slab ribs.. no need to write serving.. depends how hungry someone is at the BBQ.. haha..
well, it's just too close in time for me to be packing and wrapping up last min things before I go to week-long art workshop in S Texas.. Society of Animal Artists is the main focus, the instructors are all members of this cool group.. I drool!! My brushes & paints shiver with excitement! haha.. and so, I will be taking off a little later today, for a couple weeks.. Kerrville, TX, down near San Antonio.. maybe an hr or two from it.. about 8-9 hours from home.. but I will pick up a friend a couple hrs south of me, so won't be driving alone! :-) She's nice, likes to stop for photo ops and old trucks, old homes.. etc.. so, will be easy to travel with.. ought to be lots of fun!
I wish everyone sunny cool days and starry nights!

To get to know our neighbors better!!! I'll reach out and make a point to visit with the lady to the south of us! her hubby is out often and we visit with him .. but.. I will visit with her more!!! gosh, a year here and really haven't even met her!!
so like the deer.. a hello and how are you!! is in order soon! dc done!
ahhh a beautiful heavy fog that nearly drips moisture sat on our valley this morning.. made silence special, like you could nearly hear tiny water drops misting the atmosphere.. diamonds on cotton..drops not really there.. and the smell of earth, new growth..and life ready to spring from the starting gates..
really nice early morning! coffee tastes better… reminds me.. need to get another 1/2 cup.. :-)
well, I better get this next home portrait started in paint.. the sketch is done.
and I will be going over the list for my upcoming art workshop trip.. so, busy.. and grinning!
ahh, got new dishwasher, we pulled it the box off it last night.. a dent in back.. need call Sears.. goodness, the things that itch! just gotta sctatchit now!! grrrr..

Barbara, Cymry, Candace! thanks bunches for the E!!! it seems to be harder form to get here on time.. thankssss!!!!!
and I did this one several times! it really does feel good, and give nice stretch! I'll do it again too
I'm switching photos to when the kids pulled their tassels around to the side.. like we needed to pull our arm around, but we had to do more..I think they had more fun!
6 of the 8 in honor society.. over 3.5, all 3 boys and one girl in High honors.. over 3.81… not too bad for tiny school, they actually get more attention, can do more.. went on several awesome trips… FFA takes them to Kentucky each yr to the convention.. yep, a cool group.. and 4 of them,the 3 guys and the gal on front L.. started from pre-K.. the original 4.. and they all supported the new kids when ever they came, or left through the years.. I gotta go, one of the guys, brother of boy on rt here, in front of my grandson, alphabet seats..
just called, asked if he could stay with us overnight.. he took his gal from here to graduation, brought her back today, now, will spend night with us and go back to Colorado tomorrow.. he goes to college here, out for summer though.. so, no dorm to stay in,, we're delighted to keep him!

I stood, slid down wall.. leaned my back againstthewll.. didn't realize had so much a curve in my back.. but got this done, pulled thigh muscles a bit.. dc done!

old photo from a few years ago when I painted murals in two kids rooms of one of the homes I've done murals in.. , all walls both little boy's rooms,, just starting here, 1st few days, nothing is close to being finished here.. but.. I had to wait for the walls to dry after the builders painted.. then, I got to play on brand new walls! no leaning on them and sliding, but I did a LOT of reaching and bending and ladder work.. and sitting.. haha.. great excerise to paint murals!
I hope ya'll have a wonderful week-end.. no storms!!
I'm off to graduation, back in couple days! :-)
okay, before I stress… I want to say thank you to.. Cymry, Patricia B & Debbie!! ThankYOU, Thanx! Thank you!!! for the kind E's ya'll sent my way today, I appreciate those!!!
And, I looked this up, seems pretty much just like it was years ago… and good ol' deep breathing, walking and peaceful sleep are all helpers! along with other things.. dc done.
photo is from a larger (36x40..I think) acrylic that I painted a few years ago,, the original hangs in a doctor's clinic, they bought it.. this is a giclee framed of the original.. anyway.. I picked it for today's dc..
title, "A Sticky Situation" cactus & horn tips.. and that could be stressful in the wrong situation. haha.. Now, I hope everyone has a peaceful night and a beautiful tomorrow! Nothing sticky!! nor stressful!!
Vicki, thanks a bucket full of cool clear water for the sweet nudge today!! :-)
I'll get to your page in a min..:-) now, for my fav cool..healthy beverage.. water, of course!! just like that old western song.. Cool Clear Water.. keep a moving Dan don't ya listen to em' Dan…lalala.. cooool clearrrr waaaterrrr… humm… never really thought about that old song much.. it's about crossing the desert..burning sand.. and mirages… oh my.. what all sort of stuff is packed into these old brain files.. and why do they jiggle out of the blue at times..
I like water with lime-- but still need to drink more than I do.. thanks to Vicki and Wanda for keeping me on my toes and after that goal of more sipping.. dc done!
photo.. from this week-end and is the same mare that is in my profile painting.. She Wears Braids.., I bet her mane is over a yard long now.. this gal is bathing her after a long dusty day.. I can hardly wait to start painting.. got several to pick from!
