How exciting. Be sure to take some great photos if you have a chance.

I'm really looking forward to it. Their will be a lot of photos and I'll certainly be excited to share them with everyone here when I get back. We will be stopping at a lot of the areas where the impressionist lived and their is 2 stops that are visits to VanGoghs home and Monets home. Not sure if we will do those because the alternate tours are the castles which I would love to see. One place that isn't part of the tour is the Musee D'Orsay in Paris which we will find the time to visit. It's the impressionist museum and I'm really excited to see it. I'll be counting down the days. Smile

Congratulations Janet. By the time you read this IT will have happened. I hope you had the most wonderful superdoofulussly day. I look forward to seeing the photos.
Hope you make it to the Moosaydorsay, my favourite place to visit in Paris. Sitting in that restaurant under the clock is romantic, I think.
Glad to make the occasional visitation.
Jack

Good to hear from you again, Kopo! Well, I got good news at the Doctors Office last Thursday! I can start to put weight on my hip again, but only 20 pounds to start with, and an additional 20 pounds per week. So, I figure I'll be back on both my feet by the end of January. Then I'll have to go to physical therapy. But the exciting thing is that pretty soon I can set up my painting area again. Happy Days!! bounce bounce

Dayle,

Wonderful news. I'm sure it will make the holidays a lot easier being able to increase the weight on the hip. I bet you are chomping at the bit to pick up that paintbrush again.

Happy Holidays.

Glad to see you again Jack. Hope the past few weeks have brought pleasant times for you.

Judy

This weekend I've opened my studio to the public and turned my house into a gallery:









had a good turnout today - hope tomorrow is just as good. Smile

Thank you Jack, we had a wonderful day and everything was perfect. I can understand why the Musee d'Orsay would be your favorite place to visit in Paris. Their is nothing like seeing an impressionist painting up close. Smile

Dayle, Great news regarding your hip! Thank you the wedding was great! Smile

Sofie, your gallery set up looks great! Good luck! Smile

What a brave thing to do, open your house to the world. I hope you generate many sales from your visitors. The photos make me realize the sizes of many of your paintings. On the forum you don't quite get the full realization. Good Luck.

Judy

Thanks everybody! I had a good weekend meeting all the nice people who dropped in to my studio. Collected two huge bags of food for the food bank and sold a couple of small paintings as well as cards and prints. Smile

Merry Christmas santa. I finally broke away from the art league work and finished my Christmas card painting with which I now convey my warmest greetings to all. This is a view from up in Wyoming's Big Horn Mountains.



Oh, and a bunny rabbit just came up on the deck, gave me a card and asked that I send it to all the WSO forum members. So, I'll include it along with mine.

Thank you Jim for sharing a wonderful Christmas Card and all the warm wishes that went with it.

I'm out the door to go sing Christmas Carols with my granddaughter's Brownie troop. We are going to an assisted living facility to share the joy of the season.

Merry Christmas Jim! Love the Christmas Card! It's beautiful! Smile

Judy, sounds like a good time! I use to love when the Christmas Carolers came by the house. Not too many people seem to do it anymore. I miss it. Smile

We had great fun caroling,and the residents really seemed to enjoy it. Thank goodness it was inside, because yesterday was one of those very rare days when it rained continuously. I guess we should be thankful that it wasn't a foot of snow.

Happy Holidays!

I'm glad you had good time Judy! We have a lot of snow here and I'm envious of your rain. One thing about snow is that it does put me in the Christmas mood. Have a Merry Christmas! christmas

Thought I'd get in quick before Christmas arrives. Not posting paintings at the moment, a bit stultified. And what I'm painting is not suitable for posting, it's a nude.
Anyway, I think ages ago I told you about our ceiling coming down. Well I'm posting a picture of the same ceiling prepared as a planet suite for the Christmas and New Year parties.
Hoping everyone has a great time.

Hi everyone - sorry I have not been on the site - just busy with some changes at work and painting. I finished my course so what freed up one night quickly filled with music practise.

Sophie - I loved how you set the house up as a gallery. It really showcased your beautiful style seeing it all together.

janet - congratulations. It has been a very busy and challenging time for you.

Jim - Your artwork always amazes me.

dayle - glad that your hip is better.

Gosh - I should go back and find some of the posts I missed. If I leave this post I will lose what I wrote so excuse me that I forgot others - Kopo, Judy.

hi Janet, I didn't realize i still had the Champ Stamp.

The course was good and not so good. The instructor pointed out a major flaw in my paintings (overall) and I appreciate it. But it was a large class with a variety of skill levels so beyond the first night - some of us didn't get as much from the class as we would have liked.

But I have been painting and will post the photos later.

My instrument? Vocal chords. And I sing with two friends because we have a good time - not because we are any good. (harmonizing is a challenge even0
