Asian Lily 11X14 Acrylic on Canvas
Yesterday was my 75th Birthday.
On Wednesday I was a bit depressed about truning 75.
But then when the day was here, it wasn't so bad.
After all, I'm still here and that's something to sing about.
My family, of course is very happy that I'm still here.
My dog doesn't know that I could not be here, because he
lives in the now. A good way to live.
Alexandra, my GD gave me a sweet card and wrote:
"Grandma. I'm so happy that on your
75th Birthday I get to be with you.
You are very important and influencil
person in my life and I feel very
lucky to be a part of you"
Now how could I not be happy to be here for her and
all my other loved ones.

photo for a painting referance.

Chinese Tree Peony Watercolor

To tired to write much tonight. Had a good day, passed my drivers test, took a walk and spent a couple hours in the studio.

Another busy day. Went to the Chiropractor this morning to get my by-weekly adjustment. All's good there.

DH, Leo and I stopped at the Park Deli to have lunch, Leo love their turkey basil sandwich. I share with him.

Spent a few hours in my studio and started two new paintings. I figure that if I work on two at a time I can get more done. There's always waiting time so it works for me.

Here's a painting I did a while back.

Fantasy Garden 7 x 7 1/2 Acrylic on Paper

My day was very busy today only had a hour or so in the studio, but that was enough time to finish this piece. It started with just a poured wash, then after it was dry I studied it and found shapes, and it became what you see here. I love working in this way, it's always a surprise. Took my three days to complete it. Hope you like it.

Not sure yet how to load these things and get the pictures where I want them. Guess I'll have to read the tutorial. Oh bother.....

Mandala de las Mujeres, Acrylic 15 x 15

Nice cool morning today, seems our heat wave has broken.

I'm hoping to get down into my studio today and do some

painting. It all depends on DH and what he has in mind.

First thing is usually taking the dog for a walk. If we don't

he gets depressed, the dog not DH. LOL

Here's a watercolor that I did a couple of weeks ago.
