I haven't written for a month, and I wonder now what to say.  I took a trip to the "North Shore" and saw wonders of this world.  The north shore is red cliffs and smooth rock with waves from an ever changing lake that looks like an ocean with no land horizon.  The food in the restaurants is fantastic and I want to paint my memories but have not, as yet, taken the challenge.  I have been painting and will actually show a few but the rest will have to hide for a bit.  I've entered some shows.  the painting above this blog of my friend, Ginny, and her cat is now in the members' Show at the Hopkins Center for the Arts, The painting of the the green dress, hat and shoes that I now call, "Luncheon" I have entered into a show and so the time goes by with Art Shows galore in Minneapolis.  The weather has been unbelievable for sunny warm days, but beneath the beauty is drought and very frightening is that.  Take care my good friends...Perhaps I will see you soon at an art show.  I'll try to update my calendar to let you know some of the dates and places.  Emmy
