Blog 600 and to market, to market

Hi everyone. I was about to slink off to bed without
fanfare, when I realized it was blog 600 tonight!
Wow! I've been doing this for 600 days straight.
Has it changed my life? More on that tomorrow.
The short and happy answer at the end of a long,
delightful day is -- Yes it has.

We dropped into the Wychwood market to pick up my
painting from the Artwalk Central show this morning,
then headed for the Brickworks market because they allow
dogs on leashes there, and we had Zoey with us.

I picked up these flowers at PegAn's table, and
headed home to paint. This is the little painting I'm
working on now.

It's Saturday night, and it's been a great day of
seeing family and friends, so I am off to bed.

Have a curling-up-with-a-good-book day.

Dear Flora,

I'm so glad you like my flower paintings. I think I have a whole wall of them. 5 across 4 down -- nope keep painting. The message seems to be keep painting.

Love you,

Barbara
