Three days ago, my daughter Jenni came for a visit. She had planned a "dad-daughter day" together. She had told me to get my paints ready, but that's all she would say about it. So two days ago, we traveled to Summerset Ridge Vineyard and Winery near Louisburg, KS. Unknown to her, I had been to this place with Cathy many years ago. Nor did she know that I had not painted with oils since her Mom has been gone, until I told her while on the way to the winery.
I was VERY rusty, and wasn't sure how I would feel, with brush in hand. But I enjoyed it...and will definitely keep going with this. A huge thanks to all my friends and family that have been so encouraging to me. smile emoticon
And so...for a season...I am just going to keep painting and see what happens. Now that I am retired from working at Hallmark, I've got some flexibility to explore whatever grabs me. This morning, I set up in my backyard and painted my geraniums. I don't usually paint flowers, but I couldn't pass up these awesome red blooms.
