Happy Occasions

No new paintings this week, but we did have a happy occasion on Sunday: my son, John (aka Jay) and his fiancee, Claudette, got married. They had a lovely outdoor ceremony in their backyard...a little nippy, but sunny and beautiful, with all the fall foliage around. The reception was held at the restaurant where they met, seven years ago, when they were both working there. The wedding was a lot of fun, and it was great to be able to welcome Claudette to the family. I've been calling her my daughter-in-law for years, but now it's official, and I couldn't be happier. Congratulations, my sweeties. Love you both!

White House with Forsythia

White House With Forsythia
11x14, acrylics on canvas

The latest. A house I passed while on a day trip to the Boothbay/Southport area last spring. Nice sun and shadow, and a huge, blooming forsythia bush.
