Change Of Life...

Meant to take good digitals of recently completed work but didn't get around to it... will have to wait until next week as we have a full load through the weekend. Sort of waiting for an order of rice paper to arrive before starting more large canvases, I've tried several different kinds and really like the paper from my original order best. This is the paper I took to France and I'm still preferring the effects of the brush marks I made on that paper. If they don't turn out right, I may have to go back to France for the correct effect! I can dream...

Tomorrow we close on the house, and will carry a van load of tables, dishes and whatever else we can fit. The weekend is shot as we must tend to other plans... so life comes to a halt for a few days as we regroup and prepare for a new way of dividing our time and energy. This is good. There comes a point where it would be ever so easy to just sit back and watch the world go by... and that is not a good thing. We are really tickled about reowning this house and property and can hardly wait to start making it all that we know it can be.

J sawed the lock off the doors to the storage area on the boathouse and found things exactly as we'd left them! Life jackets, stack chairs, fishing poles and even the push mower. The upside down rowboat in the weeds in first pic is not the one we left behind... I suspect this one is not in the water for a reason. The boathouse is actually on the empty lot that we never sold, but we did leave permission for it to be used when we sold the house. Wow! That's a lot of weed trees and bushes to clear!

Lots of hot sweaty work to be done, but oh my, do I ever envy you guys! You must be so excited and what fun it will be to have retreat to go to.

This whole experience seems like finding buried treasure which just happens to be your own! Seems like earlier in the year, you were wondering about new directions. I think I see the signs!

I think I left some huge part of me in France, so just let me know if you need a driver for the Opal.
