Wednesday

This makes my third painting finished this week
They all just needed one more day of work so I
focused on one each day this week.  Even managed
to get them framed. Thank you for all the title
suggestions for the other ones.  I plan to pick
one!  Titles and prices when I return from vacation.

Here is today's painting.
framed 14x18 untitled.

Tuesday...

Today brought more glass cutting, hooked up the new
cable boxes for my father-in-law.  Then painted the rest
of the day.  Below is the results of my days labor!

Untitled (again, open to suggestions)  I have a "thing"
for church pews, especially when the light shines
across them.  This was in a church in Cumberland
MD.  We went to see the Tiffany stain glass windows
they had, which was a wonderful collection and worth
the drive.  This pew was in a side room.
framed 17x21"

this week...

We leave on Thursday for a family vacation to Iceland!
I had nothing to do with picking the location, I hate the
cold...but the scenery will be fantastic.  It will be interesting
what I see to paint.  Don't worry the house is not empty,
again my house sitter will be moving in and Linda's dad
lives here, as I said before, the house sitter is here more than
we are!

Rather than work on miniature paintings I have several larger
unfinished paintings that were started over the past few
weekends that I am going to finish and post.  Today I got a
haircut, went to find cheap flip flops for the Blue Lagoon!
Dropped off moulding to be cut for frames, finished today's
painting and cut some glass.  Oh... took a 32 mile bike ride
this morning.

Here is the painting, untitled if you have some suggestions.
framed to 14x18 (from Chanticleer Gardens in Wayne PA)
