Just before sundown, the chefs go out to get a little fresh air.  A scene like this took place in Termezzo on Lake Como.

Introducing Gus, Strong and Mighty.  I have two grand-dogs.  Gus is the one I see most often.  He is gentle and playful at nearly 10 years of age.  So huggable!

Brown Egg

Another still life featuring the same three 'objets.'  As it turns out, my birthday on Wednesday was on the same day as my birth.  By that, I mean to say, I am 'Wednesday's Child.'  Yes!  I was born on a Wednesday.  Thank Goodness.

This title is a little misleading, n'est-ce pas?  Due to my camera setting, the brown egg is a little orange.  Easter egg, maybe.

One Fresh Egg

I have celebrated another trip around the sun with candles and cakes.  What a wonderful time to be alive.  Still life painting today with three of my faves, subjects, that is.
