New Grandson





It has been a long time since I last posted in my blog but life has been busy and a little hectic sometimes. Although one very happy incident in my life, was the birth of our new grandson Juan Carlos, born September 18. He is very good little baby so far, and sleeps almost all of the time as most babies do. His sister Sof├Ča is a sweet little protective sister but was not all that happy today when I got to carry him. She wanted my attention quickly, which is something that flattered me very much since it is usually me who can't get enough of her attention and she had been more of a granpa girl until today. :)

Artwise I have had to slow down due to a herniated disk in my spine but I am excited because Michael Newberry has suggested I use his Plein Air technique using small panels on still life set ups from life. This will be much easier because, in spite of the fact that I will do them in one session I won't be fighting with the light changes until I get enough practice to try them outside or indoors on natural lit subjects. I hope to post these soon!

I am sorry to hear about your back problems, but I'm glad Michael was able to help you out with some suggestions. I'll be watching for your new posts. Take care!

Mary, your new grandson is gorgeous and his big sister is an absolute doll!!!
Looking forward to seeing your new little still lifes. I'm hoping to do some alla prima still lifes myself once my paints arrive.

I have not checked here recently. I didn't know you posted new pictures. Thank You. He is a little doll, and of course I think Sofi is as cute as a button.

Take care Mary. I hope you heal quickly.
