I have still been painting this weekend, but have forgotten to photograph my progress. I've had such a beautiful weekend that it's been quite a distraction. My son, Aslan has a new talent of catching dragonflies. He waits outside with his thumb in the air, and they are strangely drawn to land directly on his thumb. When he wants to keep one, he simply clamps down with his forefinger.
We've set up the pool, and have been swimming and grilling all weekend. The figs on our fig tree are ripe for the picking, and we're making all kinds of things from fig icecream and grilled figs to fig cobbler. I simply must share with you what we had on the grill today. Here we have lamb kabobs with lamb raised by our friend, Ragan. Not shown are the burgers made with free-range buffalo. We have potatoes on top, fig kabobs basted in pinapple juice and cinnamon, which tastes remarkably like roasted marshmallows, and unbelievably delicious roasted pineapples. More pintings for you next time!

We had a wonderful visit with Mike and Patrice. Tonight, we painted as we watched the Kenneth Clark "Civilisation" series. I feel pretty good about this quick study of Patrice. It is about 24"x18".
This is what the painting looked like at the end of last night.
