SUSAN'S OPEN HOUSE/ART SHOW


It was a gorgeous fall day to drive over to Susan's and see her paintings for sale.  She had out a lot of goodies to munch on, drinks, and was her usual lovely self.  She had her paintings hanging on the walls throughout her home and then had many that were matted and wrapped to look through, too.  I found two immediately and had to decide which one I would love for years - and chose this one.  Beautiful!!!  I also picked up 2 sets of Christmas cards.

I hope she had a great 2-days and sold lots of paintings! 

I don't think I'll be doing much painting this week.  We have a painting crew coming this morning to start taking down a wallpaper border and then patching holes (from all the photographs and paintings hanging on the walls) and painting the living room, hall, entry, etc.  One guy is here now removing the paper while another is at the Sherwin Williams store picking up the paint for the job.  They estimated a 3-day job so I'll be sitting and reading and watching and practicing my Spanish :)

This is a beautiful painting. I can see why you had to have it.

Oh what a gorgeous piece of art you chose!! I can easily see this in a bedroom or in a little feminine study type of room. Lucky you getting the new walls!

Hmmmm Rhonda, I'd be thinking about spreading some paper on the floor because you might get some good Pollock-style abstracts from those guys if they splatter alot. :) Just saying!

Excellent choice, Rhonda!!! It is a beautiful, rich painting. And good luck with the renovations.

Thanks, all, for your comments. I'll get it framed and hang it up somewhere - I'm going to be more particular about what I hang on the walls now that all the nail holes are filled in! ha ha Carol, had to laugh about the Pollock-style abstracts. They did put down drop cloths on the carpet but not over the furniture when they were removing the wallpaper border - I finally got some plastic and covered my oak bookcase that was getting sticking wallpaper on it! The painters came and covered everything before starting on the ceiling. What was scheduled for three days took only 1 1/2 and done! Looks good but I did have to keep an eye on them a bit due to messiness, putting cups down on the furniture without covering, etc. We don't have much compared to others, but I do like to keep them as nice as possible.
