81 Maine on the Brain



We had breakfast this morning at Lucille’s, a cajun cafe here in Fort Collins.  Yum!  They had a painting of a crawfish on the wall and I was given an idea for what to paint today.  My husband and I honeymooned in Maine 2 years ago and with the cooler weather coming we’ve been reminiscing lately.  So this lobster is two fold.  I love painting with red!!  It’s so vibrant, and usually the different shades of red and orange don’t really get picked up by my camera, but they look okay here.  Phew!

Here’s a shot from the men working on my bookshelf today.  Way to go guys, it looks great!

Beauty and the Beast library here we come!

Something to look forward to:  I might get the chance to paint (with oil pastels) a 6ft x 6ft square of sidewalk with local friend and artist Scott Freeman this Saturday in Loveland.  I’ll keep you posted.  But you could start praying, I haven’t used oil pastels since high school!
