I love paths, roads, walkways that lead you to interesting places, they have such character. They are also difficult for me to paint into something you might want to see on one of your journey's. Guess this is another challenge to pursue this year. Ok, I'm going back to the drawing board to see what else I can come up with. Before I go, what are you working on?

I think I'm writing this for me. This is Bonnie Marie, Miss Bonnie as he called me or sometimes I was referred to as "you special thing" don't know where that came from. We didn't find out Bonnie was a boy until he had been with us for about three years so the name stuck. He arrived at our house at 10 weeks and was quite a little character. One of his favorite pastimes was pulling clothes partially through the holes in the clothes basket, it took quite a while before I figured out he was also chewing little holes in those items. Another was muttering, "I'm just sure" as he watched the birds outside. There are so many little stories I had better keep them as memories rather than bore you and loose my audience. So, thanks for being here and listening.
He was special and has created a big hole in my heart. I will miss my little guy.

I have these wonderful oranges and find I enjoy painting this color. In the past, orange was always mixed with another color and for some reason, I decided to see how the almost pure color would work out. It's sorta bright but I'll go with this one. What do you think? Yes, please comment.

Sorry, meant to post this earlier but sorta forgot. Here is the apple sitting on, the table vs. floating above it. One ok maybe two or three brushstrokes helped. This should have also been cropped better. Next time, I promise to do it all correctly in one shot.
What have I learned from this post? Simplicity is the key, maybe to everything, not just art.
