The Six Weeks are Over

Sunset on the Columbia River

Quick up date on Dan the man. He is doing so good.  His six weeks of recuperation from his second hip surgery is over and he is doing just fine!!!  A little tired the first week of work putting in those 8 +...hours at the office, but that is to be expected.  One of the best moments during his recovery came when at 3 weeks he had his blood tested again for the cobalt chromium levels...results were no detectable signs of cobalt chromium!!!! Woo Hoo !  Thank you dearest Jesus!
Our annual hot summer night cruise on the river with great friends!

I now have my domain back to myself  ;>)  and I have been a busy bee.   As I shared a few posts ago, I was invited to participate in a once a month art walk in our historical downtown area.  I had such a fun night!   So I am into water color painting for the next week.  I had lots of fun today when I decide to take to my garden for inspiration.  I ran outside with my pruners and this is what I came up with.

Then I sat down and "loose painted" away.  

 One of the local artists came by at the first Art Walk I did last month and said ...Oh, ghost flowers !  Funny, funny, Cam...but you know he is kind of right. So I went a little brighter on this one.  His wife came in earlier and offered me a show at their coffee shop.  We will see who wins out :)  Hope fully I am going to try to get some oil painting done next week and come up with something a little more less ghosty.

Computer update! Some of you have asked. Let's just say the jury is out. You may have noticed my little mac  charmer in the background.  If I could only tackle IPhoto I would be so happy.  I have had some "helpers" but they can't quite seem to help me get my file system back the way Aseedc filed them

Oh and I did try downloading Aseedc for mac, and it looks just like IPhoto ...urrrrr

So happy to hear Dan is doing well...this time around!

Your garden inspired paintings are beautiful. I think I'll just leave the painting to you! (The supplies I bought with good intentions are still in the bag. Smile.)

You made that bouquet into something far more special than it originally was. That's incredible!

So glad that Dan is feeling so much better and that that the nasty stuff is gone. He looks content and happy as do you.

Lovely scene on the Columbia.

So glad to know Dan the man is out and about again and feeling much better. That is one gorgeous sunset behind you in the boat. I love your "ghost flowers" because of their delicacy...

Sounds like you have switched from PC to Mac? I'm still on my desktop Mac...never got into the laptop computers...not yet anyway. But I love my iMac.

Your watercolors are so have a nice light hand with them, and that's not easy to do.

Very, very nice! More please!!!

And, so glad about your husband. I can hear the relief in your post. Life back to normal is a joy. :)

I saw your mac peeking out from behind the flowers! You sound way ahead of me in some ways--your i photo is a generation ahead of mine so I'm a bit clueless there. As Melissa said, the "relief in your post"--I was going to say voice but realized we are hearing your voice through your writing--the relief is quite evident. The sunset photo says it all ---peace and healing! So happy for you. And the water colors area beautiful.

Thanks all, so nice to hear from you. I will be back into blog land a little more consistently in a few weeks I hope.

Just a little something from Judy said...

I wish...really wish...I could run outside with my pruners and create what you did. Beautiful!!! Then to think you could reproduce it on paper with paints...what talent.

So happy for your husband and that good report you longed to hear. Now maybe portions of your creativity will start flowing again on this blog. Loved those two pictures with the sunsets.

It thrills my heart to see my talented sister painting again!!
