Monday Morning Madness

....or as I like to call it "The day after Sunday".

As I watched the morning news today, I decided once more how thankful I should be that an early morning commute is not on my agenda for the day. A tanker truck ran off the interstate and burned blocking traffic from the north and on the west side of town, another wreck halted drivers for hours while road crews cleared debris. So goes the report most days for metro Atlanta! My mornings are much quieter in comparison.

Today's weather report says it will be mild and sunny promising a good day for outdoor painting! Later I'll post a painting....if I actually do make it out painting! Sometimes my best laid plans all fall apart in the urgency of daily "stuff".

How about your day?

I have a new granddaughter, Sophie Noelle, born on December 13th, and she is already the center of everyone's attention! Her smiles and coos light up the room. Thought you'd like to meet her too!

I'm her "Mimi"

Have a great painting day!!

Friday! in the Studio

Today is Friday and the weather forcast says we may have up to three inches of snow by morning! I know some of you won't be so excited about that but for we southern folk, that's big news! Although I'm hoping that I'll be able to drive tomorrow to my studio. I finished a landscape today, 36 x36 oil on canvas, that has been in the painting stage for almost two months! I've put it aside several times to work on other projects but since it's a new year, I decided to get all those unfinished paintings out of the way. I'll have to take a pic of it tomorrow and post it for all of you.

Here's a pic of my studio so you can see where I's a large old warehouse building. The second floor was removed so we have wonderful high ceilings with huge windows. That ladder looking thing is my easel - left over from someone's studio that vacated before I moved in. I've used it for 36 x48 paintings but it will hold much larger!!
Visit with me sometime!
