Thanksgiving Service

The downtown churches held a combined Thanksgiving service Monday evening at beautiful St. James Episcopal. Choir members from the churches also combined, including me. We practiced for a short time, and then took the steep steps up to the choir/organ loft in the back. It was a wonderful time. From "on high," I took a couple of pix with my phone before the people came in.

Early Christmas giving

My thoughtful #1 son putting Christmas lights on my house. I never had them, and he knew I wanted them. They are beautiful!

The Fourth

My easel has been on the screened in porch for the past week, and that is where I have been painting. It is chilly out there! This painting will be finished soon, unless I decided it already is. It is a 20x24 like the purplish one. The canvas already had a painting that I disliked the more I looked at it, so I eventually covered it up with what you see. There were parts of it I wanted to save, and it was hard, but I had to focus on the overall composition.

Those who dream

While I have a lull, I am trying to knock out these paintings. I know the ability is in there somewhere! Yesterday I worked at finishing one I started the day before. It wasn't bad. I took some pics and said...not bad. Today I painted over it. Not once but twice. It had some nice places and met the rules and formulas of art, but it brought me no satisfaction. This is where I am with the canvas this evening. I may tweak it a bit, but I am considering it my third one. A little on the Twombly side.  Nine to go.
