St. Pat's Day Dinner

We are ready to eat - corned beef and cabbage with carrots and potatoes and soda bread. This year it was my friend Doris's turn to make the meal.

The table, the food and the cook, Doris Nielson.

More Snow Photos

Two pictures from Monday. The snow had started to melt but enough is left to give you an idea of what i looked like after the last plow went through.

The front of our place from across the street.

Looking west down our street.

January Blizzard - 2016

Three photos taken from my windows during the storm. And no, we did not go out.

My neighbor's front door - notice the finch sheltering on top of the window shutter.

Any port in the storm....
The view of the drift outside my kitchen window.

The Year Away and a Cooper's Hawk

It has been over a year since my last post. In that time we have moved from Long Island to Pennsylvania and suffered some serious health issues. I have also gotten away from Art. I've missed not doing my doings and have just recently started a small water color. I hope to have it done by the beginning of next week.

At our new home a Cooper's hawk enjoyed a Mourning Dove on our front lawn. He ate some of it and took off with the rest. I assume there were some chicks looking for dinner....

Elan Valley, Wales, Painting

View of Elan Valley, Wales

This is a 9 x 12 inch oil painting of a view along the river in the Elan Valley, Wales. I used a pallet knife on canvas. The subject was painted from a photograph I took while visiting the area.

It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.
