"Happiness is found in friendships we make along the way."
Where shall I start?
To my good friends near and far, I couldn't have made it through this move without you.
And special thanks to those who came to visit (three different sets of them) and help me re-acclimate to my French life. I couldn't have indulged in all the laughter,
the decadent cuisine, the incredible desserts, foie gras, meursault , chocolate, award winning macaroons
all by myself now could I?
After all, what are friends for?
Thanks for the
calories, I mean, memories!
Now it's time to, squeeze back into my work britches.
It must have been the French who invented sans a belt pants.
At the End of the Day 6x6 oil on museum board
I loved the quiet intimate mood of this couple. I can only guess what they were discussing. You might be about to tell whether you're a optimist or a pessimist by what you think they are saying.
I worked on this painting in the morning but wasn't satisfied with it and moved on to
something else. Just when I was about to clean up for the day I decided to pull
it back out and do a "make it or break it" maneuver.
I had a few colors left on my palette and some nice gray mixes. I went back into
the painting, eliminated all the fussy detail, and kept what I felt was essential.
I can only speculate on this couple's conversation and it was the same with the
painting process. I took a gamble and gave it a shot. In this
case I like what happened at the end of the day.
