Ive gotten most of van finished except a few cabinet doors that will have to wait until I get back east and have more Baltic Birch to make them with. I was going to buy more here, but I have quite a bit at home so it didn't make sense to buy more. I still have sections of ceiling to finish screwing into the metal ribs and some other minor details, but I'm good to go.

All I have to do now is hope and pray that all the tornadoes heavy rains have stopped by next Tuesday and stays that way for the week. I go through Amarillo, Oklahoma City, St. Louis and Columbus, Ohio, before heading up to Buffalo to visit family and then on to Northern NY.

See the photo below.

The stuff at the top of this second picture, is the screening I put over the back opening. I was trying to hold up while taking the picture while standing on a step stool. A little awkward, but I think you get the idea.

Wow, Judy, are you doing ALL of this by yourself? You're amazing! How does Mozart like the motor home or has he been in it yet? I hope the weather is good for you - it's about time for some good weather!

Happy Mother's Day to you!

Time to head out. Hope the weather cooperates. I had to do some creative packing since this is a little smaller than what I've had previously, but I have the important stuff.

Finally got home after 9 days. I had to stay in Buffalo a few extra days for a funeral for my husband's aunt, whom I usually visit each time I pass through.

Other than some hail in New Mexico and heavy rain followed by dense fog in northern Texas, the trip was great. I love my new van. The gas mileage was 20mpg as opposed to 12mpg from my old van. The bed was really comfortable and everything worked like I wanted it to.

Now I've got a lot of unpacking to do, hook up the water and get the furnace going. Back to work!

Forever summer, and traveling with new scenes to paint all the time. Sounds like you live a good life. So happy for you.

Thanks Faisal and Crystal. Now if the weather would just cooperate. It was 80 on Sunday and then got cooler as the days progressed and tonight there is a frost warning. Thank goodness I got all the water valves back in and the water turned on without any leaks, and got the furnace running last night so it was toasty warm here.

A few more days of cleanup and getting organized and then it is back to painting.

Did a few small painting exercises for my Sumi course. Here is one of them.

This is really beautiful, Judy! Very Oriental and looks to be a perfect Sumi painting.

Thanks Jan. I'm having a hard time being very creative these days, but at least this came out pretty good.

Thanks Crystal,
I'm such a detail person, that these classes are really helping loosen me up.

Is the Sumi art a Japanese/Chinese artform? Looks very much so and pretty...

Yes. The class is contemporary Japanese painting and uses several Sumi brushes along with others. I'm not real good with it and sometimes have a problem with leaving white space which is often a significant part of Sumi painting. It is a challenge and is fun trying a new way of expressing thing. It is mainly watercolor and liquid inks.
