This is Mary's latest painting which she just completed today. The name of it is Hooter because it is of an owl. I was impressed by the amount of detail that she got into the painting, especially the log. She usually works on two paintings at the same time. She will work on one painting and let it dry for 24 hours. While she is letting that one dry, the next day she works on a different painting and keeps switching back and forth while they dry. It keeps her busy and she enjoys it. I just can't understand how she has the patience to paint in all of the detail. Look at the fine feathers. They had to be painted in one at a time. She is very good at it and she is building quite an art collection. But me? I couldn't even do the paint by number paintings. Really! Painting is just too slow moving for me and I don't have the attention span for it. For example, I don't care for the slow moving game of golf but I do like the fast paced action of football. Instead of a paint brush to create pictures, I use my digital camera. Not anywhere's near as pretty and colorful as an oil painting but a lot quicker and easier for me. Have a nice day tomorrow and try to stay dry if tropical storm Ana should loom on the horizon. Lew
