Only one art student showed up on Tuesday. It could have been the weather, which was stormy, although it cleared off by art time. It could be that people are just busy and art takes a backseat to other things. It does make me feel un-loved. The one little art girl that did come is very good. It was a pleasure to work one-on-one with her. We did something totally different that usual. We found an Impressionist painting that we liked (and thought we could do) and started painting. We picked American Impressionist Frank Benson's 1909 painting titled Sunlight. I do love his work - such great light and fun brushwork. This is the start of my painting. Maybe I will finish it up today.
Yesterday I went to WF to see the moms and Jesse. Once again my mom chose to have lunch with her new beau rather than me. It is great that she has a beau and is doing fun things with him. I really don't mind. On the other hand, she goes to lunch with him all the time, and I only come over once a week or so. Toby's mom dropped everything and changed her hair appointment to have lunch with Jesse and me. It is good to feel loved.
After lunch, I did visit with Mom for a little while before picking Jesse up from school to go shopping. Mom chose not to go with us for whatever reason. Jesse has two events this weekend that require fancy dresses. We picked out a very nice dress and some shoes. Shopping with Jesse is always fun. We laughed and were silly as usual. We had dinner at On the Border. It is good to spend time with the ones you love.
You know how Jesse often confuses words, well, she did it again. When I called her yesterday morning to make plans to come to WF, she mentioned that Robert (Mom's beau) was feeling better. I said, "Oh, has Robert been sick?" She said, "Yes, he has tuberculosis." In my mind, I knew he did not have tuberculosis, but I did not laugh at her. When I questioned Mom, she said he had bronchitis. I love that girl!
