Painting of the Week


Jesse took this picture while we were in DC a few years ago in November for the Ia Drang Veterans reunion. My longtime student, Sarah Ann, also chose to paint this picture with me. We kept the other students entertained while we "raced" to be the first one finished and fought over the photograph while we painted. I showed my girls the new artist blogsites that I had found. While showing them the Painters Daily site, I thought, "I could never do a painting a day." Then I realized that if I did not spend so much time on the computer, I could probably paint every day...hmm.

Jesse had a softball game last night. They may be a losing team, but they have a lot of fun. Toby got home from Houston - we both were home in time to see the St. Louis Cardinals win. Yeha! I am looking forward to cheering for Detroit in the Series. Today, I am headed to The Falls. My sister will be there again - more shopping, more eating, more fun!

Was that a game, or what!!?!! And, it goes without saying concerning the Tigers: Me, too!

Go Tigers!! Being a Texas Rangers Fan I am of course a "Pudge" Rodriguez and Kenny Rogers fan so I am definately pulling for the Tigers. I was at the game when Pudge made his debute. It was against Oakland and right away, Ricky Henderson was on first and tried to steal on Pudge, he was out by a mile. That was during the time that Ricky Henderson was leading MLB in stolen bases. That was one base he didn't get. I took my sons to see the greatest picture of all times that night (Nolan Ryan) and we ended up with a bonus, by seeing one of the greats catchers that has ever played the game. What a memory to share with my boys!

Now on to the next subject, if more painting would mean less Bag Blog, as much as I enjoy your paintings I would really miss your daily blog.

If I didn't spend so much time on the computer, I could get a lot of things done.

I'm not much up on baseball, or most sports in general as a matter of fact. I suppose if there were a man in the house things would be different. As it is, we occasionally catch a football game on every now and again.

Lou, I think this is my favorite weekly painting to date. Maybe it's the subject matter. Maybe I just really want to visit D.C. I just really, really like this one.

Wow. I just popped over here from my husband's site.

This painting is really beautiful! We visited DC a couple of times before Kris left for Iraq. Your painting captures the beautiful, "whispy" feelings I had while I was there!

Artist's Wife, Thanks for the compliment. I think your husband and Mike Fay are just pretty awesome as artists and as heroes, and I think the wives of such men are just pretty special too. You will also be in my prayers.
