Re: Savannah Beauty

Its amazing how different your life is once you meet the half way mark. The clock keeps ticking faster and faster and there just isn't enough time to do everything you want to do in your life. When you are young you dont think anything of it, but now its countdown and want it to really count this time around.

Deb, I took the liberty of pulling this quote from your blog "Life After 50". It says a lot about how we place a greater urgency on things when the years start to add up. My biggest challenge these days is deciding which scene or subject to do next, because there is just so much to paint, and the days are flying by.

I've been back through your threads, and you really are doing some nice things with gouache. Keep it up.

Thanks Ralph!!! Yes, there just isn't enough time in the day to paint all the wonderful ideas are there! Best to get the good ones and the most enjoyable scenes down to make life a bit more pleasant.
