Ron has been moved to 2nd shift starting yesterday, so I'm adjusting (as he is too) to not having him here in the evenings. He is here during the day, but my working from home and being on conference calls all day isn't much fun for him (me either but it's what they pay me for).
Found this very interesting link today, great lightfastness test of inks and watercolors. http://www.theenchantedgallery.com/lightfast.html thought other artists might find it helpful and I wanted to keep a copy for myself too.

Ron came down to Savannah today... it was nice to hear him praise my workshop paintings and drawings. He's so supportive of my painting hobby.
Marc's painting of the Church towers.
Photo of my view of the left tower.
My preliminary drawing of the tower.
After I added paint to the tower.

December 7th Pearl Harbor day, happened before I was born, but my father made sure his children never forget it. That was a defining moment in history for his generation of Americans. September 11, 2001 was a defining moment for my generation, and I plan to do my best to make sure the younger generation (now in high school) who were born after that day remember it too.
Ron and I attended a 9-11 Memorial ride today, out to the St. Paul fire department. Hot and humid today. Afterwards, Ron took a test ride on a new Milwaukee 8 Harley. He liked it very much it's a bright orange, for my artist friends, looks like Holbein's Scarlet Lake.

Ron and I went on a ride today to benefit the SPCA, had fun and managed to NOT bring how a rescue dog, as we were on the motorcycles and couldn't traumatize the dog with that, had some cute little dogs, and a sweet border collie mix that tempted me mightily. College football on tv tonight, we don't really pay attention to the NFL games.
Wish I could credit the photographer of this great pre-9-11 shot of the World Trade Center and the Statue of liberty. It is a beautiful shot and a favorite of mine.

I'm taking an online class with Roz Stendahl 'By Design', one of the many exercises in the class is to write your text in columns on your visual journal pages. I don't usually write a lot on my pages, nor do I ever write in columns, or pre-paint/ink a page but I did all three on this page.
