Go Royals!

I apologize for being more excited about baseball than painting, but this is what we are doing.  This photo is from one of the playoff games.  We'll be watching the games and cheering in front of our t.v.!  Our kids, Amber and Eric came over last night to watch the game with us.  Our good friend, Mark, joined us as well as we stayed up stressing out for 14 innings!  Way to go Royals!

This painting is traveling today to it's new home Pennsylvania:

Autumn Wreath

This is my husband's idea of a fall wreath.  Although right now I have to admit that I really like it!  I'm not sure who you're cheering for in tonights game at Royal Stadium, but I know who we are rooting for.  We did wake up to gentle rain this morning so I'm hoping it stops before game time.

We'll be watching the game from here though and this room is a mess right now.  Last weekend we ripped out the carpet because my sinuses couldn't take it any more.  Every time I sat down in the room to watch t.v. I couldn't breath.  Watching the ball games with no oxygen getting through just increases the stress load.  

Needless to say the floors underneath are in pretty bad condition and we will need to have them refinished or replaced.  I'll keep you updated on that.  This was the only carpet left in the house and even though the floors look bad, I'm breathing a little easier for the game tonight!

New Round Snowman Folk Art Puzzle

My "Chimney Smoke and Cheery Snowfall" painting is now available as a round puzzle and you can get it at Bits and Pieces website.

I'm off to work on a new autumn painting!  Love this new cooler weather, but my sinus's not so much.  It's difficult to love autumn, my favorite time of year when I suffer with seasonal allergies!  It's kind of a love/hate relationship.

Fill Our Hearts With Thankfulness Folk Art Painting

The neighbors who live in this little cove are thankful for so many things.  They join together each year at their church to prepare Thanksgiving dinner for those who have no place to go.  Large tables laden with turkey, mashed potatoes, and all the fixin's greet those who come through the doors.  Pumpkin pies and various other desserts are served as the guests finish up their meal.  Needs are met and new friendships are formed.

Last night I stayed up and finished this little 6" x 6" autumn painting because the Royals had the night off.  Looks like we'll be playing the Astros tomorrow night.  I can't paint and watch the games so I'm glad I was able to finish this one up.  Are any of my readers baseball fans or am I alone on this?  Oh, maybe I should do a painting with some children playing baseball!

I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ.
