I'm back to painting...

It's good to be back at the easel. I was able to push myself to get back at it on the first of September. This painting of a street in Tuscany has been waiting impatiently for my return. I may consider it finished now, but it will have to sit in the livingroom for a few days for me to check it out. It's a little darker than the photo suggests.

I also finished off the last couple hours needed on this cool scene of Lake Okanagan near my home.

These two paintings do not have names yet...soon.

Just to update you on my husband's health:  He has no pain or discomfort.  He is walking and talking better then before and his appetite is good.  Unfortunately there are numerous brain glitches he has to deal with as the cancer takes it's tole.  Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes since his diagnoses in April.

  1. Hi Bonnie,
    You definitely don't know me. I happen to drop by as I'm browsing the works of art in people's blogs. Sorry to know that you and your beloved husband are fighting hand in hand in the trip of cancer. It is great to know that as a painter, you have the clearest perspective of the journey as He is on the side of the two of you. I'll pray for both of you.
    By the way, A Street in Tuscany is fab! And forgive my interruption.
