We slipped away for a long weekend to visit family in Portland, so I'm just getting back up to speed with painting. It has been a beautiful fall here, but the cold nights lately are a reminder that autumn's colors will soon be gone. I spent yesterday soaking it all in along the Grande Ronde River--a gentle stream this time of year.

Here's the culprit for my absence from the easel lately--our four month old grandson, Grayson:

Now wouldn't you skip a few days of work for that face?

a few days of being with that gorgeous face has put a skip in your palette: this painting is stunning! and the title (i've heard Louis Armstrong sing this) is so fitting for this up beat painting.

Hi Rahina, thanks a lot. That little boy sure puts a skip in my step, if not my palette. I thought of the great Louis Armstrong too, when I titled this.

Yes I would!!! Gorgeous painting and gorgeous face!

Don Gray said...

Nice to hear from you, Laurel--thanks on both counts!
