Another Blast From The Past

Since I'm staying at my sister's house until the electricity is restored in mine, I can't play with fabric. 

  I painted this oil painting of a colored beach towel hanging on a wall in 1987. It's about 28" x 40". My sister bought it and it hangs in her house.

Here's a detail.

It's fun to revisit artwork you did 24 years ago.

There are now about 89,000 homes without power in NH. (On Thursday the number was 200,000.) Mine is one of them. This is the fourth largest power outage in NH ever. They expect to have all power restored by the end of the day on Monday. I sure do hope mine is connected before then.  

Millie and I are fine.

Love the painting, Lynn. I would have bought it too. When I lived in a remote Alaskan village, I would often have power outages of an hour or two. Not fun and not of the length like you're having. I did have no running water for five weeks one winter. That really was not fun. Hope you and Millie are back home soon.

LOVE that painting - if your sister ever gets tired of it, there's a home waiting for it in Tennessee . . . .
