It has turned winter. I've got 2 sweat shirts on. Ha ha.. I tried to take Cupcakes picture a few minutes ago but it frightened her and all I got were her back legs and tail. She is sweet but so afraid. It's going to take some time to get her comfortable I'm afraid.
I've made some coffee. I'll make a meatloaf and then paint a little. Talk to you soon. Love to each of you, Diana

|Cupcake, our new kitty!|
Here's Cupcake, she is still living in the bathroom but lets us pet her and rubs our leg so she is doing better. Not with Sadie, our dog, she doesn't like Sadie at all. We've got to work on that.
Saturday, I was invited to "Cream of the Crop", an art auction at Artsenter Theatre and Stage Door Gallery. I gave them one of my Heron paintings, " Wachapreague Herons". It was such a lovely evening. I went by myself, John doesn't like Art Functions much. He's been to so many. Wine, Jambalaya, Sweet Potato Bisquits with ham, ham, Mixed Salad, and Apple Pie ... Lots of wine. I know I said that. This was the menu. Larry and Trina Veber did the auction and were wonderful. We sat right in the theatre by the stage. That is such a lovely place. The money earned will support the Artsenter Theatre and Stage Door Gallery in Cape Charles. Here's what I wore. Ok I almost didn't show you because I look huge. But I'm starting a diet now.!! YES.. and then I look around and realize the holidays are almost here..
This weekend is ESAL Winter Art Show at the Stage Door Gallery in Cape Charles. I've got to make an Apple Cake for that to server. I'll be there with my 2 new paintings.
The leaves here are gorgeous, such oranges,yellows and peach... and the smell in the woods is heavenly. Sadie and I walk there every morning for a little while.
Take care , love to each of you,Diana

I wanted to tell you about our new addition.. It's Cupcake. Our new kitten. She is very shy. Sadie -our lab-hasn't met her yet. We are taking it slowly, getting her used to us.
I've gotten in my Brusho Art Crystals. They are different. I like them but not for everything. Wet the paper and then sprinkle the crystals on it and they burst into brilliant starbursts. Don't use the brush too much or they lose the burst. That is what I've learned about it so far.
Hope you are happily painting and not blocked and grumbling like I have been.. love to each of you,Diana

|My Watercolor Workshop at Norfolk Botanical Garden.|
|Northeaster on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel.|
There was a Northeaster coming!! Which is hard gusts of wind and rain for hours, this was coming early afternoon. Amy and Renee both offered me to stay with them if I couldn't cross the bridge. They were so very kind to do that and I talked to both when I got home. The CBBT closes for safety of course with high winds. It was still open but I had a grip on that steering wheel.. Gusts of wind and waves with white caps almost touching the bottom of the buildings at the tunnels. I was so very thankful to get on the Eastern Shore. The Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel is 17 miles long with 2 tunnels and is a gorgeous place when the weather is nice.
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend and staying warm and dry. Love to you,Diana
