2018 Window #4

4x6" Miniature Original Watercolor.     $225

I went back to my French inspiration.  This is from the Alsace Wine Trail.  Love that yellow color.  Unlike any color we have here in the states.

One  week today since Linda’s knee replacement.  I think she is doing well.  It is mostly pain management and swelling management.  Her surgeon takes a different approach.  She is to be resting like she has the flu.  And 5 times a day, which turns into every 2hrs.  Do 2 stretches, walk, ice and elevate. A huge thank you to everyone who dropped off meals, flowers, and care packages.  We are blessed with wonderful friends.

Ahh, redware... no more needs to be said.

Linda is home. Pretty bad swelling and we are having a little trouble getting ahead of the pain.  It will be a long night here at the Smith house.  But we are told it will improve daily from here.

I just found out Sunday's May Day Festival in West Chester has been CANCELLED due to incoming rain...

I hate when shows cancel!

Tuesday check in

I knew I would not get anything painted today.  We left the house at 7:30am to go to Lankenau Hospital for Linda's pre-op testing and cardiac exam.  All went well despite rush hour traffic going into Philadelphia.  Arriving home at 4pm making it a full day.   Linda is good to go...  Knee replacement on May 21.  I decided after all that I deserved a bike ride!  I still might get something accomplished later tonight.

This Sunday you can find me:

May Day Festival
