#108 "Pick me! Pick me!" oil, 16" x 12"


Over the weekend I finished two paintings and started another. This is the second painting I completed. Since I am headed for Mexico for a couple of weeks the one I started will be awhile before completion. These jolly little scooters were sitting in the sun outside the rental store just hoping someone would come along and rent them. Their shiny colors somehow remind me of jelly beans. It's hard to know which one I like the best. Hasta la vista for awhile. The Ray for the day is: "Pick me! Pick me!"

#107 "The Barber Shop" oil, 16"x20"


While on my birthday paint-a-thon at Studio 106 I finished this painting of the barber shop. Of course it is in Langley. 5 of us spent the weekend painting, talking, walking, eating, drinking. It was a paint-a-thon slumber party! What a great time we had. The weather was gorgeous and we were all blissed out. Joanne led us in a Shrinky Dink project. (You had to have been there). I will post the results when they are in. It also turned out that the garden around the studio was being planted while we were there, so it was being created around us as we painted. Being Halloween we saw many ghosts and goblins lurking around the streets. It was quite magical. The Ray for the Day is "The Barber Shop".
