Simple Gifts

Last Day of Summer, 8” x 10”, OilThe Living Room studio is open again today. I’m doing a stop drop and draw still life with whomever in our group wants to drop in. It’s an odd time of day and week to have a social gathering of any kind – I want a few people I know doesn’t work on a weekday - but it’s making for series of busy but art-filled Wednesdays.I draw or paint regardless of who drops in. Thing2 is at school and Thong1 is interviewing for a desk job today to stay occupied this year as he gets his health to a point that will let him go away to school next year. For most of 2018 my mid week days off have been occupied with doctors visits. Having almost 3 weeks in a row of afternoons dedicated to drawing is a gift that’s not to be squandered.
