Another Lititz  Holiday door. I painted this before Christmas but did not have the time to blog!  This is the last Holiday painting for the season.

I have been painting but its taking several days to get one finished and no time to actually write a blog.  I now have about 7 paintings on my wall ready to show you so i will try to post every day this week.

Family update:  This is my first post since Linda's hip replacement.  I have been chief caretaker!  She had a little rocky start with a bad stomach virus on day 4 that lasted 4 days leaving her pretty weak.  She doesn't think she is as good as she should be but she is a type A!!   She is now at 4 weeks and doing well.  Must use a cane and be extra careful for another week and then in 3 weeks get an exray.  They were a bit concerned of movement in the femur.  She has muscle spasms and trouble sleeping and 2 bad knees but the hip is actually doing well.  She is now allowed to go to her desk for 2 hours a day and I must play bad guy to get her to stop!  We scheduled the first knee replacement for May so don't expect to see much of her this summer!   I must say a huge public thank you for all the meals that showed up!  I have been cooking but they were a help in that first week when i had to make sure she ate before taking the oxy and running ice packs and water every half hour round the clock!  Another thank you for all the nice cards you sent, they meant a lot.

I am starting a new commission and am struggling with the drawing.   Classes have started.  Week one was cancelled due to a frozen studio bathroom pipe which is now fine.  So we started a week later.  Now they are calling for snow.  I hate winter!!  Somehow Linda is managing to get show applications filled out so there will be a show season.  This is not a job I do.
That about sums up our beginning January!
