I'm finally finsihed with this painting.  I'm planning to give it to a friend as a birthday gift since it's a photo of him taken in Charlottesville.  I hope he likes it.  I'm not a portrait artist so the face is just a hint of details.  I do like the way this turned out. 

I have to travel again next week for work, but at least I'm going to a fun place.  The seminar we're going to is in Las Vegas!  I've never been there, but I hear they have penny slots.  That's my pace for gambling - - yeah!  I figure I play a long time on $100 by playing pennies.  Who knows maybe I'll even win and come out ahead?

The weather here in northern Virginia has been icky, hot and humid.  We had a very short thunderstorm today that cooled things down.  I know it's going to be hot in the desert (not looking forward to the heat), and I'm hoping that by the time I get back on Friday that the temps will have cooled down some here.  Thanks for reading my blog!!  Everybody stay safe and well!

Hi thanks for visiting today, I kept remembering Pepe le Pew too when I was writing the post and see I can't spell it so I left that part out. Have fun in Las Vegas. At least it won't be humid, but it will be hot.
You will be on my side of the world. :)
Your painting is wonderful! Very nice and peaceful.
So very nice meeting you Genny,

Love your painting, you are one talented lady. Good luck in Vegas, the weather here is finally cooling off, 68 degrees as I type and no humidity!

Fantastic Genny! I had no idea you were so talented! What a lucky friend to receive such a gift.

Farm Girl: Thank you for visiting my blog. Vegas was fun but VERY HOT! That's a cool weather trip for sure.

Jayne, Andrea, and Julie: Thank you for your kind messages about my painting. I had a good time doing it but having a wonderful photograph to look at really helped. The man in the photo is my daughter's father-in-law who is such a nice person. I hope he likes it!

Genny - the painting is gorgeous! I wish I could paint like that! I'm sure he will cherish the painting - did he know you were doing it?

Did you play the penny slots in Vegas?

Lynn: No, Ike has no idea that I've painted it. He'll be surprised. He such a kind person and has been wonderful to my daughter. I'll give it to him in November when I see him in Charlottesville. I played the penny slots and won and then lost what I won, so that was it for me. I'm such a high roller!
