"Thanks, Aurelia!  Yes, my painting student pointed out that my hen shadows weren't dark enough as well.  I guess I taught her too well ; ). "

"Lovely painting.  Try to paint your shadows on the white chicken darker and you will get much more form.  Your drawing is excellent!"

My newest goal (5 years in to oil painting) is to paint with the same joy and abandon I had when I first started painting and never considered others might even look at my work!

Hi Britt,  I was looking in the paper this morning and they are saying it's going to chill down to 64 by Friday and nights all the way down to 48F  brrrrrrrr!!   So you hubby drove a train for a number of years before becoming a 'first responder'!!!   I take my hat off to both of you..  :)   Well,  need to go gather up my gear for my annual gig as Santa for the Cub Scouts.  I "HO HO HO  them and pass out the Pine Wood racer kits... I'm a good Santa, no need for phony padding with me!!!   :)    If you ever get down here (but only in the winter) plan to stop and visit..   Chuck :)  XX

Hi Britt,  hahhahahha  Thank you for the joke!!!   I love jokes as much as I love doing art!!!!   Both bring me great pleasure!!   As for that joke, it's old and one I've heard before but had forgotten, soooooo  big grin on my face again and will be sending it along to my hand full of joke buddies...  :)   We have many of your Washingtonian's here in Yuma each winter... I send you along some of today's 75 degree weather!!   And that's no joke!!!   Chuck  :)  XX     

PS, At my age I really relate to that joke!!   :)
