We rented a cottage for the week of Aug1st -Aug.6th. It was a nice break from things that have been going on here. The cottage was nice but we were disappointed that the water wasn't suitable for swimming. The photos showed it was on a river opening up to Little Bald Lake. However, it was quite swampy and full of weeds. And our other dog, Dan, got a severe skin infection and had to be brought in to the vets. This wasn't from the water but his immune system was low due to the depression He is having from the loss of Toby. I had to teach on Wed. so we returned home on Tuesday evening and then went back to the cottage on Friday. Needless to say the "vacation" wasn't what we had planned but a needed rest all the same. I have posted 2 photos from the spot. It was good for painting purposes and I started a small "sketch" which will work itself into a larger painting. I did several pencil drawings and they help to keep the "observation" skills honed!
I will be attending a "Meet The Artist" event at Gallery on The lake in Buckhorn this weekend and will have a couple of new paintings to show. (sorry if this is repeat information; I need to keep advertising!)
