Here in Spokane, on this the Ides of March, we are blessed with rain. The flowers and all growing things need water to grow and thrive, and I’m painting a giant sunflower, in very bright colors, to remind myself of that. When this mixed media picture is finished, I’ll probably post it on Etsy or eBay, with any profits going to Spokanimal, our local shelter. My art goal is, as many of you know, to donate pieces to various charities for silent auctions, etc.
I had a great day yesterday, visiting the Book Club at the Medical Lake Public Library, about 25 minutes from where I live. We chatted about our favorite subjects, book, animals and cowboys. Thanks to Mary Ann Longeway and everyone else who made the gathering so special.
Today I plan to write and, much later in the day, do some art work. Perhaps I’ll add some color to the sunflower. At the moment, it’s hanging on my kitchen wall so I can look at it and have a clearer idea of what it needs.
Sadie-beagle is snoozing away nearby, having a day off from her training, and I feel so grateful for the warmth, the light and the shelter of my snug home.
That’s the news from my kitchen table.
