How did it get to be June so soon? It was just April last time I checked. What have I been up to? Let's see.... I was at First Thursday at Art Central in April and managed to sell a few paintings. Then I was in Minnesota visiting my sister and her family and managed to squeeze in a class for 12 youngsters on abstract painting (that was very fun but very exhausting too!). Sat through two tornado warnings. Came back home to find a weird sound in my vehicle's steering wheel - got that fixed. Then an eye appointment to confirm whether or not the bleed by my optic nerve was worse or healed - (healed! If you said it in your head like a TV Evangelist, you get two points.) Had my lawn power raked and some landscaping done - then fought over the cost to haul the debris away (so much fun). Taught some kids how to make a Mother's Day card. Went to Nanaimo to look for a place to buy that we can subsequently rent out... looking at a long term solution to our many vacations there. Got outbid on two places (and got quite pouty about the whole thing). But stayed at a great place right on the ocean. Came back to a bevy of appointments and clients and meetings and lunches and drinks with friends. Got the garden up to snuff and planted my annuals (love love love portulaca). And finally, just had a Saturday filled with Garage Sale-ing and got 10 easles, 1 brass platter, two sidewalk blocks, and two mid century modern chairs.... all for $3. I know. I'm amazing.
And along with all of that I've also managed to paint paint paint and take some photos. And then add a photo to a painting commission I did. The client wanted an Alberta storm, so I did that. But before I put the rest to her painting. I took a good image of it. And when I wandering around my photos from the summer of 2010, I found this one of the cattle run. So I added the two together in PhotoShop. Gotta love PhotoShop.
