PAINTING

Monday was my Sweetie's birthday so I spent the day with him. Took him to lunch at his favorite seafood place. Ran some errands. Just spent time together. It was a fun day for both of us. Made this little on-the-monitor birthday card for him, using one of his photos of a sea turtle taken at the Newport Aquarium...

Here's a wonderful photo he took. He has back-stage access, being a volunteer for the aquarium for so many years.



I wonder if the fact that he was born in San Jose, California, has anything to do with this love of the sea and all the critters in the sea?

Oh, and I did sneak an hour or so to paint to I'm sticking to my rules of GO PAINT :)

Happy birthday to your sweetie, Rhonda. What wonderful pictures! The first one could certainly inspire a great painting.

Great card and images! My Sweeties b'day is this Friday. We should compare "living with leo's" stories:)

Thanks, Christiane, Deb and Pam, for the birthday wishes for Jerry :) I'll pass them on - he says he gets a whole week (is that a Leo thing, Pam? ha ha) He's not a typical Leo - doesn't seem to be as regal and certainly doesn't roar often but he does have some Leo traits.
