Took the Lady Mac Boa out for some conversation with my mentor’s sisters Diane and Wendy!Then off to Second Chapter for a wee tasting and to check out the lovely Dianne Gibson who has a job at 60!
Need we say more . . .
We invite you to come on up to Canada’s Wine Capital, Oliver BC, for some fun in the sun and a wee splash of many fine vintages!
Smile it is the Happy Hour!
. . . and rainbows always tickle my toes!
Blue skies . . Or prickly pears . . The attitude is my choice.
Day 4 off Facebook and I mentally feel better!
So far today only the cat has told me what to do and I have not bit my tongue once while virtually disagreeing with a friend.
Best thing is no one has tried to sell me anything, tell me how to improve my life and I have not had tears of injustice for my fellow humans treatment of each other.
Sad I don’t miss the good stuff.
I am going to make it a lovely day!
Day 2 no FB. Think I feel better already . .
Today is my friend Michael Morpurgo’s birthday!
We have been friends since 1984!
July 1th long weekend, skip the long story, I had a bottle of tequila and salt, but no lemons. That would not do! I spotted the Keg down the street and went in the back entrance with my bottle of tequila and salt in search of a lemon. I announced to the empty hall I had a splash of tequila to trade for lemons, cut please.
Out of the office came Michael! Bam a life long friendship!
Please accept this wee gift my friend!
“The Lady in Cairo” 1976 Oil on board
But there is a catch . . you have to come up and get her!
“Mother Nature’s Garden” 12 x 24″ in progress
The world does not need to know my political opinion . .
I don’t want to give them my opinion . . .
I don’t want to disagree with people I don’t know!
I need to get back to my art . . to much attention to the world . . .
I havn’t been painting that much unless you count the fence.
It is best if I just paint what I feel.
and these days . . the world gives me heartache!
“Granny, AKA Molly Burke”, 1976, 36″ x 36″ Oil on Canvas
Granny is my very fave painting, is in my private collection and the first painting I see when I wake up!
She was done during my first attempt at art school at the Okanagan College in Kelowna. Unfortunately or fortunately they showed the class the most boring film of Sir Kenneth Clarke giving a lecture on Michelangelo.
The sculptures were beautiful and I decided at that moment I was going to see a real Michelangelo. Off I went to see the world and find a Michelangelo!
And that is another story completely!
Granny was my Father’s Mom!
I never met her. Her real was Mary Pickering and the legend has it she was a Scottish opera star. Works for me!
Make it a lovely day on day 43, I think of lockdown!
Arty Smarty ended the cycle on Trees with a little hanging Christmas Tree.Sparkly Pipe Cleaners, Little presents . . . Teddy Bears and Candy Canes!It is beginning to feel a lot like Christmas.
Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas!
May the joy and peace of the season be with you!
