It’s funny how the misconception of being retired at any age leads one to think that we sit around and doodle,not even sure what that is really. See imagine that daunting honey do / gotta get to’s list that we all face. Yes that “weekend warrior” thing, well being retired or “not working” a traditional nine to five job gives that list all the more time to grow and get done and this time there’s no excuse of short weekend or long holiday. Matter of fact the name of the day has almost zero relevance in my life, sans the people I’m lucky enough to surround myself with.
Anyhow pardon my wondering ways, staying on track isn’t really a strong suit of mine anymore. Though working on my garden, staying in touch with my son, life with Katelyn and painting take up more time than a day could ever hold. Here’s a quick look at the new pieces I’ve been working on as of late.
Next a bit more color.
Below is a small but very vibrant piece.
This piece is fun for me as I love the coral technique. As always life is full of adventure. I’m planning my big retreat soon. In a years time I’m hoping to own a small farm and grow green things. By that time my son will be eithteen and able to make his own choices about where and when he spends his time. The next three years look exciting. Start a farm and studio, grown things, paint and travel. With a a little luck and some hard work the dreams I thought I lost suddenly don’t look so broken. Weird how life gives and takes from us all.
Well happy Friday my friends. Some of you have seen me on this journey for many years now and for that I’m forever thankful.
