Hello again.  We are having summer in September.  The grass is growing like the weeds and mowing chores continue.  I thought I would stop this morning to greet you and let you know that I am still painting and still growling about bad paintings.  We have continued the plein air paint outs and next will be on the Mississippi next to a lake called Pickerel.  Here is a painting I did at my friend's studio.  I'll write next month when things calmed down a bit.
