I woke up this morning to the sad news that I'm sure everyone has heard by now: Carol Marine's house was destroyed by a wildfire over the weekend. My heart goes out to them as they begin to process what that now means : ( The only positive thing I can say is that her family is safe, thank goodness. I'm pretty far removed from Texas and don't know if other familes have been as fortunate in that regard. Here's hoping. I took a class from Carol in 2009 and she was generous, funny and genuine. We're all thinking of you and your family Carol ((hugs)). If you'd like to send them a donation, card or paintings props, I know Kathy Cousart posted information on Facebook.
Okay - well, aside from that...this morning I painted these peppers from my sister-in-law's garden. In fact we minced one of these last night on top of our nachos. Yum! These are going to keep our tongues tingling this winter ; )
And a special thank you for the shout-out from Diane Hoeptner today on her blog post: Mull it over Monday. Thanks. I find your blog interesting and your work is beautiful. You rock ; )
And while I'm on shout-outs - here's one to my friend just because she never fails to inspire me right when I need it: one word and you'll know who I'm talking about: Huzzah! (yes, that's you Crystal Cook ; )
