The Fill-In 5x7 Oil
Now you know why I'm not a writer. Hardly a mystery that I ate one of the apricots and then used a peach on this second "apricot" painting. I'm eager to see if this posts okay. Luckily my daughter showed up this weekend and has been my tech support in finding picture manager. Fingers crossed.

Well, after my last post my hard drive crashed. I'm still in the throes of getting set up in a new OS. Finally got the printer to work with the computer. HA!
Unfortunately, I haven't figured out the whole picture manager deal yet, so no painting post today. Which leaves you all wondering what happened with the apricots..............

Apricots Hit Vermont

Oil on canvas 5x7

I guess we all have complaints about weather and climate. Except for those who don't complain or those who live in places like Hawaii. I follow quite a few blogs of artists who live far and wide. I watch what they paint and have to laugh at my situation. The Texans are painting strawberries while our ground is still covered with snow, tomatoes before Denny does the first cut on the lawn, and apricots - everyone seems to have apricots before we do. An Oregon artist, Cathleen Rehfield, did such lovely apricots in June, I was inspired to go grocery shopping.

My mum turned the July 1 "Champlain's Lake"opening at the Boston Public Library into quite the celebration, with great crowds of her friends and our family cruising the show. Thanks Mom and Dad for your lifelong encouragement. :)
