I've neglected my blog the past two weeks; there's a good reason....
That's my spouse holding our new grandson, Warner Percy Lystra, born January 16, 2010. Here's a better picture of the most beautiful baby ever (the possible exception being the lad's father.)
And here he is with the proud parents
I have to admit, I haven't been able to get much painting done. I have managed a few more scavenger hunt sketches but haven't had a chance to scan them yet. I did enter two pieces in a regional competition here in our area, Winter Festival, which opens February 5. I learned today that both got in which makes me a happy camper. Here they are (the light reflection on the dancers is because it's a poor photo.)
Who knew being a grandmother was going to take up so much of my time. When he's here I find myself doing nothing but stare at this sleeping miracle of a child. He's such fun to watch as he wiggles and stretches and sometimes opens his eyes to take a peek around at what's going on then back to sleep. Even when he fusses he's relatively quiet about it. I feel so blessed that the kids moved back home last fall and we are able to see the little guy regularly.
