Have a Nice Long Weekend
Fall Around the Water, 2005, Oil on Panel, 8x8
Ok, so I agree with those of you who left comments or emailed me to say that they liked the painting that I have by Mark English, but weren't into his other paintings so much. However, I do actually have another one of his paintings, which happens to also be included on his website. I am planning to write a post about it at some point, but anyone want to venture a guess about which one it is? It seems obvious to me, but maybe that's because I see it all of the time. Whoever guesses correctly gets a free lifetime subscription to my blog. Heh.
I plan on taking a major break from the computer (been spending way too much time on my butt staring at it) this weekend in order to reconnect with my gardens, have a cookout with friends, work in the studio and clean my house. Our weather has turned beautiful, stunning, and warm. So we have a ton of outside work to catch up on, putting in the vegetable garden, landscaping the patio we have been working on for two summers now, and of course the never ending weeding. We are also getting bees on Saturday. Yes, bees. When Doug was a kid he raised bees and he has always wanted to do it again, but we have moved around so much that it wasn't practical until now. So we are starting with one hive, painted orange and yellow (our daughter chose the colors) and are looking forward to honey, the occasional bee sting and wearing ever so fashionable helmets with netting.
One of these days I'll put up pictures of the hive, the gardens and yard. It's just starting to look like heaven here.
See you Tuesday.
