I have two more paintings to share. This first one is based on the photograph taken by my friend Karin at Countryfolk Keepsakes. In addition to being a very creative primitive fabric sculptor and doll maker, she is Mom to several furbabies and often we read about their antics. Anyway when I saw one of her photos, I had to paint it.
My version of it...
And then I decided to play "what if" and added some large pine trees and came up with another version
Karen suggested I add her little busy friend "Stan the Beaver" who resides very nearby. Maybe next time.
As I mentioned last week, I was going on a bus ride to view the leaves and to take pictures of some covered bridges. We had a lovely time and even got to ride up the mountain and have lunch at the famous Mountain Lake Resort. Here is a shot of the view from the bus.
Here is one of the bridges that we saw
and we even got to see bovine
So, as the old folks used to say..."a good time was had by all".
Well, I have decided to start hitting the gym, so I expect I may not be quite so prolific in the art department. Last week in addition to my swim classes, I used the stationary bike, walked the indoor track and took a water aerobics class. This is the last week of my swimming lessons, so I am signing up for Zumba Gold that starts tomorrow. It's the easier version of Zumba, aimed at true beginning exercisers and those that might need to go a bit slower. Hey, I'm not too proud to admit that I fall into that category. Let's hope that's all I fall into.
Remember if I don't talk to you before Tuesday, get out there and vote. All states have elections and I really feel that our voices can be heard. Your vote does count.
So that's it for now, hope everyone has a great week, being creative and loving life. Do something fun and if anyone asks why...tell then Susan said to!
