I want to wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving and hope you have a great day with your family and friends !
 Our weather in Massachusetts was rain all day ,but I know many of you probably got some real bad one from what I see on TV .
 My knee is doing better everyday and I really have taken it easy , I though I would paint more , but therapy and all little chores have taken my time. I am thankful for a wonderful daughter-in-law who is going to cook  the big diner tomorrow .   Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Hi everyone , I am back!
The surgery went very well, three night at the Hospital , yes with pain but I survived ! I am home recuperating  with the support of my family and wonderful neighbors who bring food take the dog for a walk and more, I am lucky to have so many nice friends .Visiting physical therapists who are putting me through boot camp, yes that knee has to bent more and more.... anyway I am doing fine, first day at the regular computer .
Before the surgery my art friend and I had decided to do a challenge in the watercolor style of John Singer Sargent , his show is now at the Boston Museum of fine arts, so here is my version I painted before the surgery, I took a photo of a Fountain in Savannah few years ago and painted it in a loose style . it was fun , hope to be back in a regular schedule of painting soon.
So enjoy my challenge !

Yes , Mr Cool was walking at a  local farm where my friend and I bough  some pumpkins a few days ago, he was walking around like he owns the place ,sure made me miss my own chickens ,but then again I would have a hard time  taking care of them at this point,   I am  going on Monday for the knee replacement ,a bit anxious !  
 I am framing him with a black and gold frame and white mat ,he his going to be on display for open studios this Saturday , he is available  email me if you are interested
