True love cannot be found~ Torquato Tasso
where it does not exist,
nor can it be denied where it does.

what you can do
till you try.

Life is painting a picture,~ Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
not doing a sum.
American – Judge March 8, 1841 – March 6, 1935
I disagree with the judge. Life is everything from doing sums to painting to cleaning the house or walking the dog. Painting and Art are just far more enjoyable that sweating in the fields.

When you create art,~ Will Smith

Yesterday was busy.
I have pictures to edit for the Strathroy-Caradoc Horticultural Society’s 150th Anniversary. I’ve never seen a group of volunteers swoop in decorate and set-up for a party so fast and with such attention to detail. By the time I was done setting up the photo booth the facility was changed from an empty room to an amazing space to celebrate. 30 of the 80 participants had their pictures taken at the photo booth. So now to edit and e-mail the pictures to the correct participants. Only 1 person didn’t want their photos shared on social media.
Similarly the Canada Post Heritage Club Annual Dinner was also amazing. Seeing co-workers again after so many years was wonderful. As always there were enough door prizes for everyone. The Magician was amazing. I have no idea how he got Ursula’s $20 bill inside the lemon and neither does she. Bob looked amazing at 83; Wayne’s sense of humour still brings a laugh; Sherry’s laugh is still just as wonderful; and it’s hard to believe that youthful Theresa has retired.
Many of the COVID restrictions are no longer in place but the varied rules are confusing to all of us. Some of the participants for the 150th celebration couldn’t understand why they have to wear masks when they leave their rooms in their local nursing homes, but could attend our event without masks. I’m just hoping the hospital doesn’t have another outbreak before my husband’s surgery on Wednesday.
You can’t solve the world’s problems, but you can paint. To me the acrylic colours on the paintings seem to get more vibrant with age. The Autumn Fox I used for today’s quote is now up and hanging in the Den. The colours are more vibrant and the layering of colours seems to have more texture than last year.
