Lilacs & Grapes

Leaving on a work vacation in a couple days .... right after my annual checkup :-). Now we'll see if I have been living up to all those things I know I;m supposed to be doing.

Eat right; get fresh air; exercise and die anyway  :-)

"Most people work hard and spend their health trying to achieve wealth. Then they retire and spend their wealth trying to get back their health."

The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the best of everything they have.

Bernard M. Baruch -Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind

nuf good quotes for the day .... now to my painting. Just a quick sketch on a piece of 9x9 canvas. I gessoed it with very thick gesso.... notice the marks.

There are no prizes so is some are not so good it's ok. Not looking for any sales either. Someone wanted to see my entries so here they are:
