I have been on a two week painting hiatus due to a lot of traveling. I have to say it was a little nerve racking trying to get back into the swing of things. I had the best intentions to paint on the road, but one excuse after another I talked myself out of it. I painted this painting to get back in practice. I really like this little red hen and I had so much fun painting my Illuminated Pumpkins I wanted to paint some more colored glass.
I mentioned we have been traveling. We have been to Baton Rouge, New Orleans, back to Alabama for a night, and off again to Orlando. It's been a lot of together time in a car for our family. My youngest son Sam is obsessed with Elmo so we have watched 'Elmo in Grouchland' non-stop during our entire vacation. Sometimes I think that is the only word he knows, Elmo, Elmo, Elmo! Brian had a convention to attend in Orlando so the boys and I did some site seeing. We did spend one family day at Sea World, but the rest of the time was just Steven, Sam and I. We visited the Orlando Museum of Art, small but nice, the Morse museum, which was beautiful, it has mostly Louis Comfort Tiffany works, the Leu Gardens, which were fabulous, and we went to Downtown Disney. We did Disney World last year so that wasn't on our agenda this trip. It was a nice trip but I'm glad to be home.
I have a lot of painting to catch up on I'm planning on entering a few exhibits so get your passports out because I'll be taking you on a trip to Italy next week.
