This could be the last post until after the holidays. If I have time to get in here, I will, but I already feel like I'm light years from being ready for Christmas.
Some wonderful things happening; paintings being sold at the cafe', my new rooster "Chanticleer" is getting the "job" done just in time. My black copper Marans are laying those very dark eggs and they seem to be getting darker by the day. Very exciting stuff. I finished painting the image for our Christmas card and got the order in today. I won't post it since I don't want you to see it until you get it in the mail.....if I don't have your address, and you want one, just email your address to me and I'll send one to you. I had dinner with my good friend Sue Silenzi tonight. We went to Christopher's for an easy dinner and lots of catching up. Felt good to see her.
The painting is of the vegetable and flower garden across the street from the French Laundry in the late afternoon. The bench was so inviting. I did take a photo of the fam on it, but didn't paint it that way. I haven't hung this painting at the cafe' yet. Hopefully tomorrow. "French Laundry Garden", oil on linen board, 10"x8", $250., framed.SOLD
If I don't get back before then, here's to your best holidays ever, despite the economy!
