So pleased to sell another print of Star City Play! This is my most popular Skyline Beauty painting that was also licensed for invitations for The Rutherford Company in Roanoke, VA! This time the print is on a child’s t-shirt and the great patron is in Texas.

I am so pleased to sell another print of Star City to a great Roanoke VA patron! The Rutherford Company sent me the invitation it was used for. They look great! This time the print is on paper and framed for a colleague. So glad to see my Skyline Beauty paintings gaining in popularity! As soon as I finish my latest wildflower oil painting I will return to this series. Here is the link to the gallery that has these paintings!
Recently a store that serves great chicken and other meals re-opened after a break while they renovated the place. We love this store and buy lunches there often so we were so glad when they opened up.
The other day I went in and noticed they had a new floor which looks great ,and the serving area is different. Before, customers could see the workers cooking the chicken, burgers, etc. Now, that part if blocked off.
Clyde said maybe they thought it would be better if we don’t see the times the food lands on the floor and one of them says it will probably taste better that way. Just kidding! Great place! We will be there for chicken soon.
Please click on my favorite Youtube! I will get a new one up soon.

Wow! Clyde is hobbling around after knee surgery and I am gaining appreciation for Home Health Care workers. He is great about taking care of himself but there are so many things he can’t do right now so he has to call on the reserves which is, of course, me.
I am having such a hard time getting everything done but that’s life. I am still so happy that he will be well in a few days and not on disability. The doctor repaired the tear and said his knee looks great! He doesn’t have to use a walker. Yes!!!!!
Also, happy to sell another print of Smith Mountain Lake to a great Florida patron! I have this one on special at 40% off for a large canvas print! Check out the special below! It ends today!

Clyde is a great patient but things are not too funny right now. Every once in a while he turns his leg wrong and has quite a bit of pain. He is not taking the pain medication, just a very strong form of aleve. He doesn’t want to deal with the side effects of the strong stuff.
Anyway, I did see another cute funny about nurses. You don’t mess with a nurse. They are paid to stick needles in people. Love it!
The guys are home today due to the snow so I am hiding the mouse in my pants pocket whenever they come near the computer room. I have an ipad but I hate using it. Too small. So much to do and it is too cold to walk in the snow. I have boots and cleats. I hope to get out there before the weather is 60%. What a roller coaster winter!
I haven’t had the chance to paint today but I am getting a lot of things done, even washed my hair! I hate washing my hair. It takes so long to comb out the tangles. One of these days I will cut it short but I really like long hair so I will put up with it a while longer. Cheers on this beautiful day!

The other day The Bird Man came to my rescue. Between my wireless mouse that kept losing signal and the female cardinal bashing itself on the window I was ready to throw things. Actually, I did. I went into the kitchen and threw a few plastic pieces around the room.
The Bird Man figured out a way to keep me from hurling the mouse through the window to clip the cardinal. He covered the window with paper. Now the cardinal can’t see the hussy that was encroaching on her territory. Now I know where the phrase bird brain comes from. Just kidding. They are probably smarter than me. My nest would probably fall to the ground.
Funny thing. Now that the bird is not clobbering the window, the mouse is staying connected. Were the two irritating events somehow related?
Blue Ridge Discovery News
Again, The Blue Ridge Discovery Group is gearing up for better weather! Here is a link to more information!
The Young Explorers Club, ages 9-18, comes together to explore, discover and share the wonders of the Blue Ridge. Email email@example.com to learn more about the Club and our upcoming trips.
I know the Bird Man is glad the weather will be warmer this week-end. Not that the weather stops him. It just stops the car so he can’t get to his favorite sites. Roads are fine and the Bird Man marches on.
I asked him today how many species of birds he has seen. He wasn’t sure but he thinks the number is around 400. That is pretty good for a bird watcher that will not go to any place where the wildlife is waiting for him with a knife and fork as soon as he gets off the bus.
No Africa for him!
Here’s a bird he has never seen and unlikely to ever see!
I am so pleased to add another country to my list of locations for my work! A great patron in Switzerland bought a print of one of my favorite paintings in my Yin Yang series! Now I have artwork in 26 states, Washington D.C., Canada, Germany, England, Australia, Russia, and Switzerland. My work marches on!
My Special Promotions end today! I will renew Pawleys Island Sunrise in the Sand all February. Check out the listings at the bottom of the post.
I am still plowing my way through my studio. Right now it looks worse than when I began. Oh well, I am finding things so that is great!
I consider our computer room to be Clyde’s studio where he has all his writing stuff and birding stuff.
When I complained about how hard it is to clean up my studio I suggested he clean his up.
He said he didn’t have a studio, just a Messyo.
That’s for sure! Fat chance of that being sorted out. He does take a few things out of there to recycle so I shouldn’t complain. Don’t let anyone tell you writers don’t have a mess like artists do. NOT TRUE!
Well, that explains it. All that mess is coming from more than one person! LOL!
