I had started this on early on my trip- still needed tweaking -as I look at it now it looks like the blue grey river rock is water ( in the foreground) might need to fix that! Today I could only handle about 20 minutes of painting. Jet lag finally set in today- flying against the sun is tough( boo- hoo- poor me!). I went to Lowes in the early afternoon and got some composted cow manure and soil and flowers to bring over to Kate DiSantis' house- there was a work party there to help her, she is fighting brain cancer. I did a little- not much, and of course there was great food( of course- it was the Lyons family!)
I know she will come through this- she is a wonderful person and has given so much to so many for years- now it's time to give back . It was an inspiration to see so many cheerful loving hands at work mulching, weeding, digging, painting, cleaning and burning in her yard and house.
PS- sorry for the extra post yesterday- i did a little editing and republished- didn't realize it would go out twice!
