This week has been a bust for painting. It seemed like everything I touched turned to mud! I travelled from Gouldsboro to Wells and back the next day to celebrate my parents anniversary- 57 years! We had dinner at our usual place, Hobbs Harborside Restaurant. Mom had a terrific piece of baked haddock. The crab quiche was – meh and Dad did not care for his lobster. What was most interesting was the drunk woman behind us ranting on and on about how nobody loved her and her family did not care about her and they needed to get with it and show her the respect she deserved! I almost asked the waiter if we could move and I was looking around to see if we were on that TV show “what would you do?”…but no camera came out and I felt just awful for her family and then her. I said a little prayer and gave thanks for my life…that could have easily been me had I not quit drinking! (I did paint a card for Mom and Dad but I forgot to take picture. Mixed Media watercolor and ink peacock) OK then back to the Maine house…I spent most of Sunday cleaning and Monday shorebird watch walk and then finish cleaning house and walk with a friend. Tuesday was volunteer at Dorcas library and Wednesday was volunteer and teach at Dorcas library and then drive home to NH. Thursday I painted with Odanaksis ( the folks I paint with En Plein Aire). I should also mention this show…I have a few pieces in it too :)-

Wednesday 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.

I worked on one of the rose paintings a bit…
Below I have three starts. I cannot even remember WHERE one of them was started and I took no pictures…I was really out of sorts..the colors are off and they are just a hot mess!
