  10. Chris - not only lovely but heartwarming as well. You managed to capture a sweetness in this piece. Truly beautiful. Yes thinking of those in the path of Harvey too.

  11. I love your sleepy elephant! As always I admire how you use the colors - your elephant isn' grey at all and looks so very naturally. And yes I thought of the people in Texas as well - hoping everybody will be well..

  15. I love elephants and especially this one. Its the expression - cracked me up!
    I am so incredibly pleased to hear you got your house - FINALLY!
    I wish you years of joy, peace and happy painting there. And for your husband too....well, everything but the painting!

    1. Thank you so much, Julie! I like his expression, too. Reminds me of my husband losing the battle to keep his eyes open in the middle of the afternoon.
      And thank you for the good wishes. We will take them! We wanted to downsize, and did we ever! The house is the size of a postage stamp, but there is room in the backyard to erect a studio (hopefully in the spring). It's all good.
      And my husband does paint. He is a master at drawing (portrait and live model) and I am hoping to persuade him to join me. We used to share a studio & I miss him being there.
