An artist's journal.
Here you'll find my paintings and musings, where the featured subjects could likely cover just about anything.
The last 4+ years I've been caring for my best buddy B during his courageous fight to live through cancer and it's complications. I'm tickled to report, he's getting better and I'm finding small bits of painting time again.

Looking forward to a daily celebration of life's gifts by using the brightest, happiest colors in the box!

Two years ago I stopped coloring my gray about an adventure!...I am at peace with my decision, I actually LIKE it, but I have to admit it's had it's moments. 
Like the time the salad bar cashier asked me if i wanted the 'senior discount'. I actually gasped!
When I'd recovered I asked, "So, how old do you have to be to get this discount?"
She replied, "60"!
I gasped again, quietly this time, then recovered my composure and said with very little guilt, "Sure, give it to me".
My logic told me, if you ask a 51 year old woman if she wants the 60+ senior discount, you're getting off easy discounting my salad. LOL
