I am so pleased to sell another print of A Break in the
Clouds to a great Virginia patron! This is my second best seller and it is
great to have it in so many different locations in the US and one in
Canada! All sizes are available and it is also available on a lot of
home and beach items. Click on the link to see more!
are getting so much rain lately that it is hard to get the grass mowed
with a soaked yard. The other day Clyde said he had intended to mow
the yard but then we had another deluge and I said you will either have
to get a goat or chew on it yourself.
He said he was just the old goat to get it done.
people have to be really up there in age to consider us young but I
don't think we are old goat status yet or, at least I would like to
think we aren't.
I was able to spend time at the lake yesterday! Finally, no
rain! My guys are planning to go with me this Wednesday if the weather
is good. Looking forward to it! Summers go by so quickly. We have to
seize the beach!
and I spend a lot of time on the computer but not a lot of time on our
phones. I went from the simplest type of phone without camera,
internet, etc., to a smart phone.
had so many problems with my phone. The other day my sister called and
it didn't ring. She wrote me on Facebook that she left a message. When
I checked, the phone had a message but then when I tried to find it, it
I told her on Facebook to try
again. When the phone rang, I pressed the button and the end call button
lit up so I let out a four letter word. Then I heard my sister say
hello and wondered what the four letter word was about.
My smart phone is way smarter than me. Clyde says for us the phone is a new four letter word - fone.
Please click on my latest Youtube! I shoveled out my studio so I could film this without tripping! I am very proud of this one!
I have been trying all week to get to the lake but the
weather is not cooperating. I had all my stuff in my bag, ready to go,
and it started to sprinkle. I can still walk in my studio so today
would be a good day to get some more work done but I would rather be
day I read articles about the upcoming presidential election and I
don't know if I am reading fact or fiction . As Harold Walowitz from The
Big Bang Theory once told Raj. "Grow up Raj, there is no room for
truth on the internet."
I like to ask
Clyde what he thinks about all the stuff I see about the candidates as
he really keeps up and is good at dividing fact from fiction. So far, I
am not happy with what I am hearing from him.
In another post I mentioned the candidate he thought we should vote for. He said we should write in Scooby Doo.
has since changed his mind. Now he thinks we should vote for the Pink
Panther. At least the Pink Panther comes with a good theme song.
As usual, he is right. Who doesn't like the Pink Panther theme song?
Please click on my latest Youtube! I will have a new one up soon!
I am real pleased to sell a framed print of one of my
favorite Dream paintings, Contemplation to a great Virginia patron! I
live to paint and sometimes paintings show up in my dreams. I have
painted a number of them and they are in my Dreamscape Folder on my
website. Here is the link!
as we were coming back from the park there was a tail gator about to
kiss our bumper. This car had very dark windows, so, as usual, I
complained about dark windows. I think it is my right as a motorist to
know whether or not other drivers are awake when driving near me.
as usual, Clyde had something to say about driving rights. Much to my
surprise we all have a constitutional right to carry a gun but a
driver's license is a privilege. He was born in August so when we got
home he showed me the renewal form and sure enough, it does clearly say
I guess we should all
carry a gun but not all of us are allowed to drive. I know a lot of
people think that if we all had guns that would solve the mass shooting
problem, but I think if we all have guns the terrorists will just start
I am not going to carry a gun or a bomb but I would like car windows to be clear.
Please click on my latest Youtube! I will have another one up soon.
I am very pleased to sell a print of Heart Rainbow to a
great California patron! This is one of my favorite heart paintings and
is only available for prints. Be sure to check out this great gallery
called Whimsy on my website! Here is the link.
have been racking what is left of my brain and thinking of things Clyde
has said lately and not a funnie in sight! Nothing good on Facebook
either. I guess I will just have to declare June 17th 2016 No Funnies
Day. Maybe I should give Clyde a call and see if I can goad him into a
good quip. On no! He must really be busy. Can't get an answer.
Oh well! Maybe tomorrow. I can at least post some great Blue Ridge Discovery News. Cheers!
Tonight is the Blue Ridge Explorers Club Full Moon Hike.
I am very pleased that another print of one of my Creative
Beach photographs was sold to a great Georgia patron! I am a painter
but I do have several galleries of creative photographs on my website
and this is a popular one!

I can't believe how much better my studio looks! I still
haven't shoveled it all back in after finishing my video but I am
getting rid of things that I no longer need and organizing the rest. I
wonder if the neatness will last more than one day. Hope so!

seem to working harder and harder at my artwork and at household
chores. I am way too cheap to hire a cleaning women so I do it all
myself and lately it has been running more and more into the evenings.
The other night I mentioned to Clyde
that the old saying, " From sun to sun a woman's work is never
done"should be "From sun to sun a stupid woman's work is never done " -
Women that can't seem to get other members of the household to help out.
He agreed with me as he picked up a dish to wash. Smart husband!
