Happy Sunday!

Lesson plans are done, so I thought I'd take a moment to say hi.  I painted the blue flowers, but I don't like the painting.  I may post it anyway.  I have to think about it:)  I'm going to be on summer vacation for the month of August.  Hooray!  I love school, but I'm looking forward to August.  I'm sure my students are, too. 

Did you know that Martine Alison has a show coming up July 29 to August 4 at the Renaissance Gallery?  Wouldn't it be fun to hop on a plane to France and meet Martine and see her paintings in person?  I love her art and I love her world!  Someday...

The only news here in Las Vegas is that it's hot, hot, hot!  We're used to it.  We try to have all outdoor activities done by 9:00 a.m. in July and August. 

I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday.  I'm coming around to visit your blogs.

I would love to goto Paris, but I would probably just hang around in the "Sewers".....(If my HS French serves me well)

Jimmm, I didn't take French in high school, but I know you will be able to get us around Paris with ease:)

Sheryl, 72 sounds wonderful! I'm glad you like Martine's paintings, too. Maybe a bunch of us can go to France someday and have Jimmm as our translator:)

Bonjour, Martine! Ne serait-il pas merveilleux? Provence! Un jour! Vous êtes les bienvenus pour l'e-mail. C'est un plaisir de vous écrire.

Beaucoup de bisous à vous!

Candy said...

Hi, Lucinda! I'm surviving the heat. We even got a little break yesterday and today. It rained!

Happy summer to you, too!

Hi Candy, I understand hot. Even though it's much hotter where you are I still don't like the heat.

Thank you, Mary! You are very kind.

Hello Candy:) So nice to see you visited my blog! Your work is beautiful and I want to follow you from now on! Warm regards from the Netherlands:)

What have you been up to lately, Candy? Is teaching keeping you crazy busy? I miss your blog posts!

Candy said...

Hi, Renate! Thank you for stopping by my blog. Thank you for the compliment, too. I'm coming back over to your blog.

Hi, Katherine! I haven't gotten too crazy yet:) I'm painting a chubby little bird right now. I've just started the first layer. I sure love what you've been doing since you retired! One of my friends reads your blog, too. She loves it, but she never comments. I don't think she's quite at ease on the computer.

Hi Candy - just to say thanks for visiting my blog - even if it was just to see what kind of nutcase would still use the word 'crikey'. LOL
I'm looking forward to seeing your blue flower painting and more of your work in the future. x
