A delightful day

Today was a great day with everything happening exactly
the way it should. The weather was erratic, but our little
house welcomed visitors who came to see my art with
delicious smoked salmon and cream cheese on Steven's
home made bread. I baked some cookies,
and we had great conversations around the kitchen
table with people who dropped by.

After the shop closed up I fell into a deep sleep, slept for
an hour or so and woke up because the cats wanted dinner.
We went to a friend's birthday party in the neighbourhood
tonight, and that was a lovely occasion, with so many faces
we've known for a long time, gathered to sing happy birthday,
toast our friend with champagne, and listen to her gracious

The painting tonight is a watercolour I did several years ago
in a course. I'll be back to my active paintings once Artwalk is

Have an-enjoying-all-of-the-people-you-meet day.

I love this watercolor. It's quite different from the other things I've seen from you, yet the bright colors are still there. You are so talented. Wish you the best with your show.

Hi Liza,

Your friend came by and we had the nicest talk. She is a lovely person. I wish you could have been here too. It was a great day today.

Hi Janie,

Thanks so much. It really was painted in the style of the teacher,
Americo Del Col. So the work I am doing now is more my own than that.
I'm glad you like it.

Take care,
