I went to the Midwest Art Fair, the alternative art fair in town and I am now the proud owner of a silk/wool scarf, a smart spoon rest and two fab cards to mail. I sigh with contentment. On another note I received news that my Aunt died yesterday. This drawing is about her and the family. The garden is different?! Don't mind feeling sad but I don't want to feel regret. What did I learn from her? I hope there will be a memorial service because that would be a good place for all kinds of thoughts.

I am going today to pick up a concrete cow, 24 inches high, to paint for CFUM. Our design was one selected to compete in the 100th Anniversary of the State Fair Butter Cow Competition. So when I asked the flamingos what they thought of a cow coming home they were not thrilled and called the sky to gray up and the rain to come again. Hey flamingos may look flimsy but they got some power going. The other resident weighing in was the cat who welcomes a new smell in the garage but declines to comment on how it looks - touchy subject since she uses her seeing eye whiskers all the time now.

Went walking this morning and almost thought I saw a rainbow. It was just the way the sunrise was lighting up the broken up storm clouds and the sky between the rain that had been and the rain that was coming. I wonder if I could paint the morning/record the morning 365 days in a row as a way of opening up my eyes to daily miracles. Hm....
