"Endure" Week 37 year long project

These are dark days for me, my friends. I have lost two of my dearest companions for now, and another battles a terrible disease. I am fighting to keep myself strong.

In my thoughts about how to survive this, I remember a card a friend sent, years ago to me during another dark time. It meant a lot to me, and I still have it. I decided to use it's words as this weeks inspiration, because I will have to wait for days of happiness. My world seems to have no color and I strive to remember there could be color again if I wait. I will wait and watch and work. I will keep myself busy and when there is time, I will try to paint beautiful paintings to prove that my heart still beats.

Week 36 Year long project from 2008 Orly and Bird

I'm sorry my friends, I had to dig up something from 2008 to post this week as we have had a rough few days. I hope to be able to do something new next week.

Update on Circa Show Sales

The other day I sold all the whale paintings, and between last night and this morning, I sold Botanical Serenade twice. One of the people who wants it was willing to wait for me to paint a new one. I guess I was right not to paint figures...

Orchids from our kids

Our son and daughter in law sent us these beautiful orchids. They are in NY and can't be here with us right now, so they sent flowers. I'm trying to paint our living room right now, you can see the ladder in the background, so it's nice to have the dining room looking good with pretty flowers. My next project will be the dining room. I'm going to paint the part above the plate rail black. Scary.

Trip To Lopez

The boys, cleaning and cooking

A little beach we found

Ken and Jeanette. You can see Dave's fork hovering to the left.

Ken is weird. But we like him.

Ken's Shortribs. Jeanette's roasted veggies and brussel sprouts. Pure Heaven

We had a delightful weekend a couple weeks ago on Lopez Island with our friends, Ken and Jeanette. Most of these pics are of the food we made, or us eating. That's what we did. The cabin we rented is called Lopez Island Retreat and I highly recommend it as a getaway.

My Show at Circa in West Seattle

Sorry about the quality of the photos. We had to hang it late at night, so I was so tired I did not have what it takes to get better ones.
