My almost completed portrait of Marianne our model for the portrait group. She is a real trooper...made it thru al the sessions cheerfully and with entertaining conversation. The painting is acrylic paints on canvas.

Marianne the portrait group model. The time flew by for me...she's so charming.

Weather changed plans for today...cancelled trip to Portland due to possible hazardous roads. Bianca says it all: good day to stay home and nap.


Six Word Journal for Thursday December 8, 2011

Cough. Nap. Eat. Cough. Nap. Repeat.


ps.  Still have annoying “hairball cough”.  Tried honey.

Salt gargle.  Fluids.  Tickle back of throat.  Cough.  Sigh.



Sign of the season! The wreath is on the Somesville Bridge. It's pretty without snow, awesome gorgeous with snow.


The beginning of an acrylic on canvas painting of a blueberry field. The fields turn bright red in the fall and are gorgeous additions to the Maine scenery. Ths has a long way to go.

Somesville. Paint./Cold Sunny./Coughing Less


OMgoodness...went to Walmart and saw that the Keurig "coffee man" also has hot chocolate. (I would pass by and say I didn't drink coffee.) He said he had peppermint marshmallows also...so I thought "why not". WELL. now I know where to find the best brewed hot chocolate in town ! May have to bring my own peppermint marshmallows but OMgoodness. I am fussy about my hot chocolate...and it was so good. Now I know to check all the coffee demo people to see if they have the good hot chocolate. Can you tell I LOVE chocolate...good chocolate.

Sam’s /Best Buy/home/Walmart CHOCOLATE


PS. I lucked out at Walmart…more hot Chocolate.

Didn’t luck out at Sam’s.

First the detergent aisle…mugged by the smell of clothes detergent.

And THEN, a lady walked by me with an annoying perfume

that set my sinus’ on fire.  Unfortunately,  she had walked from

the area I was heading to, and the smell of  her perfume still lingered

in the air !  FLW. (four letter words…you can choose.).


Sunday December 11, 2011 Photo Blue Hill Maine.
