Tuesday Morning

Is It Tuesday Yet? 

Yes, Katie, it is Tuesday morning. 

The little blonde weather girl is predicting severe weather conditions throughout the day, however, our NOAA alarm hasn’t sounded as of yet.  Fortunately for us, most of the weather appears to be following it’s normal pattern of traveling in a Northeast direction along the western shore of Mobile Bay.  We’ll definitely get some heavy rain before it’s all said and done.

Yesterday I finalized my very first painting and here’s the finished product.

There was still more that I could do to it, but the goal was to learn how to paint so it’s time to quit tweaking and move on.   This painting was done in oils, but Gil, my instructor, wants me to try acrylics next.  My next painting will be of a seascape and/or a light house; I need to pick something out today in order to be ready for tomorrow’s class.

Today, Judy and I are volunteering on a quilt making project at the clubhouse.  There is a need for baby blankets in Africa for new born infants.  There will be a production line in hopes of producing around 150 blankets.   More on that tomorrow.

Take Care Until Next Time - - - - -  


  1. Very good work! I'm looking forward to seeing what you do in acrylics.

  2. Your painting looks good. I don't think I could even paint a straight line. Rub the kats and enjoy the day.


  3. Wow! A great painting for your first attempt! Keep up the good work!

  4. I really hate people with talent - except for you Darrell! Nice Job!!!
