Waiting for Lilacs to open...


So late this year...they are just clumps with barely any color.
Two weeks at least before I get to enjoy their scent on the wind.

Can't Cook during the remodel...




My niece is remodeling her kitchen
a serious remodel
walls knocked down 
all new appliances.
While the work is being done
no cooking will happen 
unless it's on the grill.
These will be anniversary gifts
to make sure there's a little food.

Harbour Town


Bahama Harbour




Peaceful and safe harbour in the sun.

There's even an inter-island ferry.

it's always fun to play with new stuff


 Here's the little color chart
for the Cretacolor Aqua Monoliths

I also did a large one with 3 different applications of the colors
dry , water brush and wet paper.
Had a little fun and did a greeting card for my sister in law.



I can see I'll be enjoying these for a quite awhile - the creamy texture is wonderful 
and they are mostly transparent.
I painted over the numbers on the chart  ;^)

warming up...

Lake Isle

It's been ages since I painted 
so now I am doing warm up exercises.
Painting, not physical exercise
perish the thought!

Now today was a nice day 
even though it started with a little frost.
Sunny days enjoying the lakes in the Adirondacks
color me there.

Meeting up...I R L

On Thursday I had the opportunity to meet Marlene of Marlene's Musings and Lazyhawk on Etsy,  face to face!
We have been chatting on line for almost 4 years. It's so very nice to have cyber friends and wonderful when you get a chance to talk instead of type.
We had a little lunch and bunch of talk and I even got this lovely framed ACEO as a gift!  Gorgeous isn't it?
Check out Marlene's shop for a variety of  beautiful things and visit her blog to see what she's been up to!

Thanks Marlene!  I look forward to many more years of chatting online and hopefully more meeting up :D

old warehouse and city living


Condos in an old warehouse in city center
high ceilings, old wood floors
and walk to work!
