So pleased to sell a print of my painting of the setting for the popular movie, Dirty Dancing with Patrick Swayze! The Mountain Lake resort in Giles County is a very special place for me. I used to swim there with college friends and my husband, son, and I spent several holidays there. It is such a beautiful place and I did two oil paintings and three oil pastel paintings of various sites. Canoes, Mountain Lake is my favorite and the painting is owned by a great North Carolina patron. The print that sold was from the small sketch for the painting. I have both in my portfolio.
A few weeks ago I discovered something about myself that was a big surprise. I get a lot of exercise to keep the body going and I also do various stretching exercises. I hadn't tried to touch my toes in many years so I tried and was shocked that I couldn't do it. So I decided to use a technique my physical therapist showed me for a frozen shoulder to stretch the muscles out. I am doing that exercise at least three times a day but it is easy to forget.
I told my husband that I was going to do the exercise every time I ate something so that I wouldn't forget to do it. He said that would be all I would be doing every day. That is ridiculous! I only eat 8 to 10 times a day! Still time for all the other things I do!
