Something old -- something new

Today was the monthaversary of our wedding day.  That's right
every month we celebrate the monthaversary of our first date,
and two days later our wedding.  Part of today's big excitement
was getting the upstairs air conditioner in.  That might not sound
very romantic, but it was lovely to be able to cool down. Whew
it was getting hot.  We had to rearrange furniture in the tiny middle
bedroom to make room to install it.

If you live with an artist in a small house, you know that
every available space gets filled with art.  Behind the large
dresser in the middle bedroom was a massive art case I'd
forgotten, and in the case I found this painting.  It must have begun
more than a decade ago, maybe two.  But I pulled it out,
and played with it -- adding acrylic ink to brighten it
up.  It's far from perfect -- I have learned so much
since this piece began, but it is cheery.

Have a finding more work day.
