Soft and Pale Sunset

haven't accomplished much the last couple of days
anyone else have to rest after a vacation?
discovered something called fluid acrylics
watched youtube videos almost all day yesterday.
day before I did make some soup and did laundry
and made curry shrimp yesterday

once my last two shows are over first week of December
I plan to do more painting on canvas
someone said you can sell a pot for $50
and a painting of a pot for $500

we got down to 29 the other morning
looks like we're in for a cold winter
Gary calls it entering the tunnel
because it's so dark for much of a day

got up to 60 during the day
so the solarium heats up
and we open the two lower doors and
let the heat rise into our home saving on electric heat

at the end of the day there was a soft and pale sunset
Barney followed me from one side of the deck to the other
while I was taking the photos, he's such a cute little boy
he really did miss us a lot and we missed him.


  1. Those acrylics do sound fun...I'm also being drawn to watercolor after the first of the year.

    1. Hi Barbara, thanks, I have always admired watercolors but I happen to have the supplies for acrylics so I'll stick with those.

  2. My granddaughter takes so many photos I think her phone may explode.

    1. Hi Joanne, thanks, I don't even know how to take a photo with a phone but take them with my camera. Ha.

  3. I think most of us have experienced the 'needing a holiday after the holiday' phenomena.
    Love that sunset. And of course Barney missed you.

    1. Hi Sue, thanks, Barney has gotten more cuddly than he has been in the past, at least to Gary; me, he just likes me because I feed him I think.


I love suggestions, questions, critiques, thanks for your comment
