WC Weekly challenge

I haven't had time to paint or draw in some weeks now, I miss it terribly. It is a special time for me, a time of renewal and it relieves my stress. I think that is the part I miss the most and I start to resent the activities that keep me from doing it! Some weeks life just gets in the way. I have finished my quilt and this week I decided to do the Wet Canvas weekly challenge. I love sunflowers so it was right up my alley. I hope to have much more to post now, expecially since we have taken the month of July off of therapy so I don't have to make the long commute.

Next month we will be in Long Beach for Jennifer's week of activities through the rehab hospital. It is such a great program for her, they shut down the marina and so that all the handicapped people arent competing with the regular boaters etc. This week the marina is theirs and we are so grateful. They do water skiing and jet skiing and hot air ballooning, soccer, baseball, deep sea fishing, kayaking, rowing, and at the end of the week we have a luau. A great week of activities for a bunch of people who need to feel normal for a few days.

Your sunflowers are lovely. Yes, I miss my art when I don't do it...and I haven't today. But I did go to a quilting club last night and a different one today so I can learn the principles of quilting. Don't know if I will go any more, but it was interesting.

Shutting down the marina sounds so nice...that is a special thing!

I love your painting! You are so lucky to have more than one talent.

Enjoy the marina!
