Market Flowers gone wild

I started off planning to do a little portrait today of a mother
and child. Then I saw the flowers on the kitchen table from
our Saturday jaunt to the Brick Works market and decided
to paint that. Here's the result.

I went to class tonight, and was excited by everyone else's
work. My own painting was too somber for me. Maybe
I'll show it to you another day.

Tomorrow's a big teaching day, so I'm out of race track for
tonight.

Have an endless late summer day.

Hi Caitlin,

I think it's especially kind of you
to remember the flowers
in my house, and not the messy files
you were helping me with.

I bless you. You stay sweet too.
