Hi folks. I haven't been around much lately but the old art bug is starting get to me. I'm just finishing building a deck next to my RV in the campground I now live in. Can't wait to set up the easel on it and get started again. Pictures to come.

I see we have some new artists here. Welcome to you all.

Hi Dick!

It seems the old crowd has all but disadisappeared around here. Things are very quiet. Are you in the campground in Rhode Island? Have you had much chance for travel?

My husband is recovering from some emergency surgery three weeks ago. My son, daughter and granddaughter have moved back to Florida from Oklahoma. Looks like we will be here until next Spring now. Life is good!

Be blessed everyone!

Still on RI. We ended up buying a beautiful 42' 5th wheel and we're just living in it. I still have a few years to retirement. I may buy something smaller to travel in when I do. I love living in a campground.

Thank you Cricket. Hopefully the next photo I share will be with the railings on and my easel setup and ready for paint splashing.

Funny you remembered that. ? i got a little bored with digital. I found I could easily do better work with it but comments I got after mentioning that it was done a computer werent what I want to hear. It's back to the canvas for me.

I think I learned a lot from doing it though. I expect I'll be a better artist because of it.
