Just a quick note because my Wednesday so far has been just fantastic. First: 7 javelinas in our yard this morn…they love our compost pile. 2 babies with them. Then 4 deer in the yard browsing. Then, I got to try my new knee brace (soft one) out in 18 games o’tennis and I passed! I can play once again without surgery. At least, that’s what I’m thinking today. Last evening I took this shot of our ring necked ‘pet’ dove, Petra. She landed on our pal, Gwynn Murrill’s sculptural (aluminum) hawk. Perfect. A dove to poop on the hawk. Now? Out to the studio to see if I really finished a small diptych yesterday…and check my Edna St. Vincent Millay poetry anthology for a proper title. I am one happy clam!I’LL MAKE IT EASIER. 8×16″ acrylic, oil, crayon and graphite on panels. SMALL.
