****Daily Wash Friday, May 19, 2006 ****

Morning All!

Okay, looks good to start this.

I am about to go to bed. It has been a busy day between work and school. Oh and baking 60 lemon meringue tarts for Katherine's school. It is international feast day and children are bringing all kinds of different foods in.

Hope everyone has a great day. Will check in tomorrow morning.

take care.

2.30pm here and the sun can't make up it's mind whether it is in or out..

I finished painting my Koi this morning.. (Christie sent Chris and I to the naughty corner to paint) but by the time I had finished that we had cloud cover.

So I sit here looking out the window and every now and then the sun pops out and there are wonderful shadows then poof it is gone again. how can I get my life painting done.......grrrrrrrrrrrr

So............ Alan has just woken up and he saw my painting and liked it. Wow!!! He said it is frame-able.. Wow!!!



Hugs and Love

Hi, Christie and JJ!

Been cool (low 60s F) and rainy here today; more scheduled for tomorrow.

Had the neighbor's sons climbing on the roof to clean the gutters. Very agile guys and soooo polite, too. Nice to have teenage neighbors who answer that description.

Well, my eyes are beginning to cross, so I'll say "gooby" for a bit. See you later.

HAWLTAIN

May your today be really good.

Lyn

Morning!! UH, actually it's night...just in from a celebration for a retiring teacher (and friend) and a very well done but wierd play.

Feel like I'm getting in here EARLY.. I guess this means that LATE my time gets me to the Wash EARLY. Uh, that's ok...my brain gets a little goofy by this time of night. Especially after champagne and oysters.

Darla, that is the BEST of news about Jeff. I believe in miracles.

Glad you all enjoyed "Char Holding the Fort"...so, ehem, Kev and Mike in handcuffs eh?? And all the OTHER mischeif makers around here??

Have a great morning all. See you later in the day!
Jen

Thank you.. And yes Alan is my DH and my #1 critique. He doesn't hold back either if he doesn't like he says so..p

I am watching Cheng-Khee Chee's Saturated wet technique Dvd. He is painting koi. Amazingly beautiful!!!

Hello All

Goodnight to Christie, Lyn, and Jen who is goofy after drinking champers!

Afternoon/evening to JJ, Your DH is right -frame it.

Goodmorning to Ken and Kev ( they sound like the terrible twins or something!!). My DH finds a hammer usually works too.

Thanks to everyone who looked at my first post in the Gallery yesterday.

Darla, once again, great news about Jeff.

TTFN
Tricia

Hi Llalena, nearly missed you!

Re: ****Daily Wash Friday, May 19, 2006 ****

Good Morning all,
It is just past 5:00 a.m. here in Oakwood. I was here earlier but WC was taking its morning constitutional!

Good news from Darla in yesterday's Wash re Jeff! The power of people like the Watercolor artists here is mighty! Hope I can report good news about Atticus soon too.

JJ, Will zip over to see your Koi painting when I finish here. Glad your IHC (in house critic) liked it!

Funny remedies to computer problems. I feel like doing some of them at times but haven't....yet.

Lyn, There was a story on our local news last night about damage to one of the neighboring towns' civic building caused by a clogged gutter...water came in and caused roof tiles to fall onto desks, etc. The cause of the clog was a bird's nest....filled with little baby robins. I didn't see the whole story so I don't know if they moved the nest or are going to wait til the fledglings leave. The reporter very seriously looked at the camera and said "This is why it is so important to keep your gutters clear!" Duhhhhhhh!

Christie, You could have made 61 of those lemon meringue tarts and sent it to Ohio! You are making my mouth water thinking of 60 of those little beauties all lined up. Bet they went over well.

I haven't been to the Gallery in a week so will start off with JJ's koi and explore what I've missed.

Waving to all who were here before me and those still to come.

SYL,

Sylvia

MORNING WASHGANGEROOS!!

Waving to everyone

Just got up - not feeling too hot this morning - got physio today too - will wait and see if the meds kick in.

JJ - love that painting - agree with Alan - frame it!!

Posted my first a*****c in the wash yesterday - just me 'having a go' - am quite chuffed with meself .......lol.....here it is for those who missed it. I didn't post it in any of the galleries as its just a practice kind of thing....although Jamie's fiance Debbie did ask me to paint The Scream for her - so if she is happy with my version she can have it!



Sending hugs all around

LUGGLES

Pat xxx

So there you go Mark (And Kevin and Mike and anyone else who likes handcuffs) you should go to Christie's house instead...... after all, her brother is a REAL policeman and has much bigger, stronger cuffs than the flimsey little ones I use I'm sure you'd like those better.....

Re: ****Daily Wash Friday, May 19, 2006 ****

Hi Washers

Dull, cold and windy day over here, heat is turned back on, jacket and thick socks too

I'm totally sore and worn out ... might be the pottering and lifting tons of clay last night . I made another monumental, huge flower pot and stand ('cause my old one gave up on me). Who needs to go to a gym lifting weights ...

My bloodpressure sure is up this morning ... found a TICK crawling up my leg (DH of course not here) ... realised i had to somehow remove this bloodsucking murderinsect myself so i used to BBQ tongs to remove it (have to admit i thought about burning it at first ... on my leg stupid eh)

Pat, that's a great painting!!! You've got the colours down real well

Also read about Jeff's news and sure hope all turns out ok. More White Light to him and his familiy!

This truckload of CRS hit us this morning ... can't remember all that was written ... maybe i should start chewing gum while reading the wash

I was going to paint pleine aire today (lilacs) but with the wind out ... nawww rather stay inside and try a stillife

see ya
