Douglas David – Painter, Part II

I am so excited!  You remember Douglas David – painter from Indiana.  He is the fabulous artist who painted our Wayfarer cottages  

Since I never have time to do anything in the summer, I live vicariously through my guests.  In the evenings after everyone is back “home” and ready to have a cocktail and a chat, I sit and listen to the adventures of the day.

A few weeks ago, Douglas stayed again and, of course, he told me about his adventures.  Douglas comes for a few weeks each summer to give painting lessons for the Frankfort Art Center and to exhibit a few of his paintings at the Center.  Do check out his website: Link to Douglas’ website

Today he sent pictures. Yay.

What a gorgeous way to work – painting where your heart desires…  The beach looks enticing to me.  Oh how I would love to learn how to paint. Alas, I cannot even draw decent stick figures.

Winter Storm 2012

Having taken another long break, due partially to having misplaced my camera again…

I am here today, finally, to show you some amazing pictures.  Until yesterday, we didn’t have enough snow all winter to make a decent snowball.

But!! Friday oh Friday, after the daffodils had already put out some feelers and the lilacs shown some buds, it snowed and snowed and snowed.

The neighbors down in Elberta called to tell me that their house is on fire and that they are coming over to make sure their 80 some year old mom, 18-year-old son and Wally the dog would be safe.  And that’s where I got a glimpse of the devastation around our house.

Without further ado, pictures:

This morning there was no snow anywhere to be seen. 

I don’t have a good picture but some of the pine trees in the front yard have lost all their north facing branches.  It looks like someone sliced them off.

Having said all that, I am very sad for all the people in Indiana and Kentucky that have had much devastation and loss of life.
