Surprise it worked. This one is for Chris. He brought the original picture home off an advertisment.

It will be amazing if this works because it has been so long since I did it. Here is my latest picture (I hope).

My 2010 accomplishments for art class. The top one is a fog picture that I took from the back sidewalk last winter.

The giraffe is from a picture that Matt Olson took when he was in Africa on rotation for med school.

I am working on a light house picture that Candace took a picture of when we visited Maine in October. I have not framed these yet. I want to get the holidays over and have time to take them.

Just a few ramblings:

Danica took my Christmas quilt to the Davis County Fair and got a blue ribbon. They spread it out to show most of the quilt. Pretty special quilt.

I took my pumpkin picture to the art department and my old house to the senior citizens area at Box Elder Counties fair and got blue ribbons on both pictures. Wow! I am making headway with the watercolor brush.

I need to thank Stock's family for their family night project at Grandma's house. They painted the swing set poles and the clothes line poles. It was a fun night and the poles look so nice now.

The tomatoes are finally coming on. I will finish canning mine tomorrow and if anyone would like some let me know.

My last painting.

This is the little old house behind Melanies. It was originally a hired man's house for John's dad. Aunt Phyllis and Uncle Del lived in it and then Merrilyn and Neil Nelson when they were newly weds.

This my painting of Ian Ramsays original painting. Our teacher had each one of us paint a copy of it. Loved it.

My Christmas Present from the Family

Everyone embroidered a block. Denise did a beautiful job machine quilting it. What a wonderful gift.

Guess what? I am still around and like the trees and the flowers of spring I am emerging from the winter doldrums. This week in particular I have been cleaning the fruit room, the storage room and the garage. It is town clean up and they have huge dumpsters by the park for people to fill up. With the help of the dumpsters, the DI and Brigham's recycle bins things are beginning to look up. I do emphasize beginning.

Today I finished my best painting. It is of the old house behind Melanie's in a winter scene. Before I did this one our teacher brought us a photograph of an Ian Ramsay painting and had all four of us paint the same picture. She took a workshop from him and that is what he had them do. Our pictures all ended up a little different but very good. I will try to post these two pictures very soon. I can't sign the Ian Ramsay painting because it is a copy of his but I really like it.

I really enjoy keeping up on all of your happenings. Keep them coming. See you soon.
