Such a beautiful day

Yo my friends,

Well, it is such a beautiful day here today - blue skies and nice warm temperatures!!!
This Make - A - ME - HAPPY!!!!    :>)

Got the house cleaning done this morning and then played around with a painting.  This is a scene from Peggy's Cove in Nova Scotia.  There is an old abandoned "left to decay" house with a tool shed up on a bluff over looking the ocean.  It is a million dollar view of the open sea and there is sits ALONE!!!!!!  SHAME-SHAME!!!!

I decided not to make it look as abandoned as it does in real life as the view is so great that I just could not "crude up" the buildings!!!!

House and tool shed

Hope to finish this come mid week as having not painted for quite some time, my hands start cramping so I had to stop for today.  You think getting old is easy???


The painting is not as loose as I would like but this also happens when getting back into the flow after stopping for a while.  What I need to do is a big painting - say 18 x 24 and I also need to get back into the Canadian style that I did a short time ago.

It will all work out - just a matter of time - I'm hoping once we get to Florida I can paint more - that's assuming we are not at the beach every day!!!!!  :>) 

I've got to get back into the "everyday life routine" once again where I paint at least 3 - 4 days a week - time will tell.

Later my friends - time for lunch - a ham and cheese sandwich!!!!  YUM-YUM-YUM.
