Every Day, In Every Way…

I am getting better and better! Recently, my Doc weaned me off one kind of med and ramped me up on another, and for a while there, that was one mean bull to ride. :) I managed to make it to the buzzer, though, and I might even be in the money. (Whole lotta rodeo jargon rolling out today.)

The weather is beautiful, again. It will be hotter today than yesterday. I know I will write, participate in a conference call, and visit my dentist. (Into every life, a little rain must fall.)

I posted an ATC on my Twitter page today–I’ve only got five, but I’m looking for trades. There will be other editions, in other colors, but this is numero uno. Send me a picture of your proposed trade on Twitter if you’re interested in a swap. If this proves to be a viable and wieldy way to trade, there will be many more offerings. Just one rule: ATCs must be 3 1/2 by 2 1/2. Go wild!

The Showgirl painting (aka What I Do When I’m Working Through a Story Problem), is coming along nicely. I keep adding to her magnificent head-dress. She’s so gorgeous, she’s inspired me to do another version in reds and golds. Renaissance Showgirl is 30×30, mostly in green, copper and blue. She’s a dandy! When she’s completely finished, I’ll post her on my Twitter page again. I’m planning a full length piece now, a Renaissance lady with a very elaborate gown and head-piece.

Since I’m a country girl, I’m starting to wonder where all this European stuff is coming from. :) (Not that I don’t love Europe. I’ve been there many times, and Sally and I are going back, this time to Barcelona, in March.)

Maybe it’s a past life memory. :)

Or not.

Cattle drives rarely went more than ten or twelve miles a day, as the cattle had to be given time to rest and graze. A drive from Texas to Montana could take up to five months.
