now there are 3!!

 When my son was visiting we played this awesome card game called Dominion in the evenings. At first you had to strategically choose cards for the game play and then nearing the end of the game you had to accumulate point cards. It was pretty fun. He has since left for Seattle to get ready for school and get settled in. I miss him and playing games in the evening. Such fun. He was lucky to leave the day before we were to get some rain from hurricane Irene. We were pretty lucky here also and only got little bursts of rain here and there before it moved on. There was actually more rain after it had passed us by.
 In my last post my son and I had painted some trees. He applied paint with a knife and I applied paint with brushes. There was one canvas left and I decided to make another painting to add to the group. I was trying to keep them all in the same color range. For the last painting I used the same colors but not as much of the silver metallic paint as in the first two paintings so the colors look a little brighter and I applied the paint for the background with a knife and then painted the tree with a brush. These will soon be hanging in my family room once it is painted with a fresh coat of paint. Painting these pictures was such fun.. I think I need to buy some more canvases and see what else I can come up with.

As you can see from the picture I am making progress on the Diamond rib lace shrug. As it is now, it will fit but very fitted and I wanted it to have a little more drape so probably two or three more repeats will do it. To bad I have to keep ripping. At least I can get back on track pretty easily. I need to hurry up and get started on some Holiday projects asap..!!

How cool that you and your son painted together! I like your trees, especially the flowering one. Glad to hear that Irene didn't cause any damage or worries for you.

Glad to hear that Irene didn't cause any damage for you. It's really cool that you and your so painty tether. I really love the flowering one, although the other 2 are good also.

Wow! Such a talented artist! I guess I am on the wrong side of the family.

Glad things are going okay with you, cousin.

Hat’s off. Well done, as we know that “hard work always pays off”, after a long struggle with sincere effort it’s done.
