Art is much less important than life, but what a poor life without it! ... Robert Motherwell
"All great art is expression of man's delight in God's work, not his own." John Ruskin

A Place to Call Home

1. As some of you know, we have been looking to move to Florence (not in Italy, unfortunately, but just as well, on the beautiful Oregon coast). Well, it looks like we are going to be able to do that soon. I'll keep you updated as it all unfolds. Once again, as always, the Lord is sooooo good!!!

2. Watercolor class today! I know many of you tire of hearing about my class, but it is so important to me. It is my "therapy", my "respite", my "fun, fun, fun"!!!

3. We took our sweet kitty, Scooter, to the vet to be spayed last week and she healing up well. It is just a joy to watch her! You can see her sweet face here.

1. It is so wonderful that the last few days have been filled with sunshine, wonderful and warm sunshine!!!!

2. Driving to Florence a few mornings ago I saw an elk standing along side of the road. Wow! I am thankful that I actually saw him and did not hit him. Also he was largely beautiful!!!

3. Am painting once again! My weekly watercolor class has resumed and I am enjoying it and my fellow watercolorists. I hope you enjoy this latest......I attempted grapes earlier and well, I'm back at it again.
