I have a dozen photos that look similar to this picture. When we drove from Rome to Florence, I made Toby get off the Autostrada and drive us around the countryside so that I could take pictures. This picture actually came from the Internet as did last weeks painting. I encourage my students to constantly be on the look-out for scenes that they would like to paint and keep folders of such pictures. I have several folders, books and magazines for them to look through when they are low on ideas.
I'm off to Kerrville to day - like a herd of turtles in a bowl of peanut butter. But I plan on making like a bread truck and hauling buns soon. Don't you just love funny sayings? After church last night, I was visiting with my friend Sherry. I told her about Jesse's soldier who misread an email and will no longer write to Jesse. Considering his foul language, it is not such a bad thing, but Sherry offered this bit of funny advice. "He should make a bridge and get over it." Then she said, " But it sounds like he burned his bridge." Oh well, I guess Jesse will just have to put on her big girl panties and deal with it.
See you on Sunday.
