I'm Cured..... lol

So... this is the first time I've actually ignored the 13th phenomena..... and it worked!
I spent the day shopping and enjoying the company of my sister and my Mother and we had a wonderful day together.
Wonders never cease..... all I had to do was plan the day as a successful event and it happened!
I think some call it "mind over matter"

I think I have "Paraskavedekatriaphobia" !!!!

So..... tomorrow is Friday the 13th of November....
I usually hide out on these days..... some ingrained fear of having a really bad day!
This time I will go out for lunch and go shopping and pretend that it is any other day than a Friday the 13th.....
Cross your fingers.... no... no. I didn't mean that.... it'll be OK..

Where to start again?

Haven't painted all summer, other than a quick sketch or two.... so now where do I start?

My equipment and supplies all look like foreign objects to me.... they used to be so familiar like old friends.

I have to figure out what to pack up for a day at the Ajax art club tomorrow... might have to start with something very simple to ease into it.... or maybe get really bold and just start throwing paint around and see what happens ..... lol !!!!!
This is the last piece I finished back in June called Shores of Cape Breton - Acrylic 30 x 40

What a great night..... lots of terrific art, seeing old friends again, good food and wine and all in the name of fundraising for the church.

Coming off Family Medical Sabatical

As most of you know.... it's been a rough summer for the family with health issues.

Now I'm finally going to try to get back to some normalcy (if that's a word!).. I've been walking at the lake, which has been very good for healing the soul.... but this week I actually started back into sketchersizing..... Just walkling with my sketch book and a pen and doodling along the way.

Will try to get back to the art clubs next week as I miss all my friends.
