I finally got so tired of looking for things in the myriad of boxes that I sat down with some watercolor and painted! It felt really good to do art, and I am happy with the result. I think this is something completely new for me. See for yourself. I have painted about seven of them, but these were the favorites. I was thinking of calligraphy strokes, and the textures of grass. So these are a marriage of those two ideas. I had fun.
These paintings are quite small: the two square ones measure 6 x 6" and the vertical one measures 5 x 7".
Yesterday, we went to the DMV, to get new driver licenses. Just another adventure in a long line of adventures. For those of you who haven't had to take a drivers written exam in a while, it is pretty challenging. I find it ironic, that I carefully read and studied the manual, knowing that the driving done here in California has nothing to do with the laws and guidelines I was tested on. For example, "Don't be a tailgater!" RIGHT. These people drive like maniacs. I guess anything will seem crazy to me, since in Salida, I walked pretty much everywhere.
Here is a photo of the new house. With my favorite item - the pool.
