It is a rainy day and a Monday. As I have written in the captions in the above pictures, I am happy about the much needed rain on this Monday. The Carpenter song, "Rainy Days and Mondays," has always been a favorite of mine. One of my paintings (permanent collection) in The Knoxville Museum of Art is entitled "Rainy Days and Mondays". There are no photos of it. :~/ The painting is of a woman looking out a window, I love the "window theme" in paintings. I digress. Someday Clint and I are going to the museum and inquire about it.
This morning Clint and I were saddened to learn one of the bloggers we follow, who follows our blogs, received some bad news. She had cancer a few years ago and it has returned. Her two recent biopsies have come back positive. She is such a courageous and brave woman to begin with, she sought The American Dream and is living it on her farm. She appreciates what so many take for granted. She has the love and prayers of so many supporters.
I'm still sorting through things in my studio/office, getting it ready to be able to paint the walls my special "Serenity Blue" color. Today I made an attempt to create some atmosphere in the chaotic room.
|Books, books and more books. It is painful to have to part|
with a beloved book. I pared down the books before we moved.
I am hoping the bookcase I'm getting will hold them all!
|Another love of mine ... vintage prints. Here are a few. On the bottom|
left is a signed Wallace Nutting hand tinted photograph.
The cupid in the oval frame is not a reproduction,
it is an actual signed photograph.
|A scented candle as part of my attempt to|
add a sense of serenity to this disorderly room.
|A few months ago I was telling Clint I had read "Remembrance of Things|
Past" by Marcel Proust was considered by many to be the most
boring book ever written.
