Grandma and Cherry Pie

 Can she bake a cherry pie, Billy Boy, Billy Boy? the verdict is in... YES I can. Crust was the standard crust my mom always makes from Joy of Cooking and the filling was half fresh cherries and half canned. Would have been even better if I had enough of the fresh ones.
Continued progress on Grandma Lucille. She is looking a little sad here but should brighten up when her eyes have a little more twinkle.  A long ways to go and lots of challenging wrinkles.

Busy Summer

I have already had a very busy summer and there is more to come. We went to Indianapolis for the Indy 500 and went to my Parents 50th Wedding Anniversary Party.
Along with travels, we are remodeling a bathroom ourselves and rearranging rooms. With all of these activities it has been hard to find time to sit down and blog. I will fill you in with the hope that each of these pictures really is worth a thousand words because right now I am too tired to think of any more.


 At my parents farm I took some time to work on this painting of my son.

 I was using my mom's easel  so I had to cover it with plastic so that it would not get paint on it. I think it would be happier with a little paint coverage.  My mother is a wonderful painter but never works on it. The easel only gets used to hold a mirror so that she can cut her own hair.

Beginning of a new painting of my 98 yr old grandmother, just a first rough in of shadows.
