    I love these Ms. Kathy. Had you not shared their citations, I would have thought you had painted each one. And yes, I agree with you and “Molly-dog”, a picnic is indeed in order. God’s blessings and thank you for the peaceful interlude this morning.

      Thank you, J.D. I’m so glad they gave you a peaceful interlude in the busyness of ranch work!Hope you have time and good weather for a picnic before summer ends! You are too kind to think that I painted any of them!

    Beautiful artwork, that’s for sure. I think my favorite is Clouds Over Olana! But then the picture of Molly is right up there at the top!

      Hi Becky, I’m so glad you liked Clouds over Olana! Olana was the home Church built for his family, and it’s on a bluff overlooking the Hudson River in NY State. I’ve taken art classes there to sketch, because the house and the view are so spectacular! Molly’s right up there for me, too!
