Day Eighteen

A Pile of Paintings
I have a pile of paintings that need to be framed, so I ordered frames today, and will give the measurements to my husband so he can cut the mats and glass.  There's one thing off my to-do list. And onto his.

I also sent out and posted the information for upcoming classes.  Another thing off the list. 

And then I went to the grocery store.  That never really gets off the list,does it?  While I was standing in the check-out line, a customer came up to me and asked if I wanted the coupon she had for $4.50 off $55 worth of groceries.  Sure!  How nice.

My friend, Karen, called, laughing hysterically. She was at a fund raising bingo event and had won a turkey.  There is something pretty funny about playing bingo for a turkey  -  and winning.  I mean does anyone even play bingo anymore?  Well, I'm not knocking it  -  because she can't use the turkey, it is now in our fridge and will be coming here to dinner. I guess that should be AS dinner, not TO dinner.  Thanks, Karen!

Are you sketching?  Sketch some of the things you bring home from the grocery store, and some of the pretty dishes we all dig out of the cupboards this time of year.  It only takes a minute or two to do a contour drawing.

I love your collection of paintings here. It looks so 'yummy' (I know in appropriate word - but not sure what word to use) -- they all look so happy together as the colors harmonize. These would make a very peaceful book together. Lovely.

P.S. Thanks for the suggestion of sketching holiday serving pieces. I'll try to do some of mine.

You are so welcome. Paint him for us all. This is my way of being with you for the holiday.

Thanks Claire! It is fun to sketch some of the pieces you may only get out once or twice a year.

kkubov - there is usually quite a bit of chaos about the time the turkey comes out of the oven, but I'll see what I can do : )

Oh!...checked in to see what you've been doing, and my!...what a collection of paintings! Would love to see each one framed. I've got one at the shop being framed and I'm excited to see it. Isn't art inspiring?? Thanks for showing us your beautiful "pile"!
