Friday...

Hello Everyone!

Thank you all for your kindness and patience over the last few days. I am still with my parents helping with my father's surgery recovery. He is home and doing well (sans getting used to some pain medication) and thanks you all for your kind word and thoughts for his health.

I am feeling bad about not making this an art post, however I am so driven by images and can't upload any from this dial up connection I am working with here. During all the waiting time, I have been doodling a little bit and have some new ideas for paintings. What art have you been working on over the last few days (I know, I know I need to make a blog visit to all of you)?

I probably will not get to much more this weekend, either. But that is the way it works sometimes with life, isn't it? I am eager to be making art again, though. So how about you? Will you be making art this weekend or will you be enjoying some beautiful outdoor time?

I look forward to hearing from each of you and will be posting again next week...it may be later on Monday, but I will post that day!

Until then, have a beautiful, creative weekend in whatever you choose to do.

Hubby's in Las Vegas this weekend, so I'm doing some painting, like, painting the bedroom door which has to be taken off to paint! Good time to get that done. But I'm also working on a new art project that I will post on Monday.

Glad your dad is home and doing well. I am sure the love and care from you and your mom are helping him make a speedy recovery. Maybe sometimes it's good to be away from the studio to give space for all those new ideas to form. Be well, suki

Glad to hear all is well with your Dad Kim.
We'll be looking forward to seeing you back next week.

I plan to do some planting this weekend, along with some other yard work. I've been trying to kick some of the dust bunnies, cat and dog hair around today.
Maybe do a little painting tonight.I still haven't gotten back to the large oil,,,sigh.

Kim I'm sending get well wishes for your Dad and I hope he is feeling better real soon. I think I'm going to start a painting tonight, I'm really getting in the mood to do some painting tonight (hehe a full moon up there). Kim, you have a great weekend!

Funny that you ask about our plans to make art, Kim. I have been in the "studio" for several days, going at the canvas with a vengeance. And I came up with a couple of things I'm pleased with. Another that makes me cringe. Art, it's up and down, like life.

I'm glad you're there for your father. You and he will be in my thoughts. When you do have time, please come over to my place. There's one of my never-ending posts--I've been away from blogging for a long time and there was a lot pent-up. And at the end of the post is an award for you, my dear.

In a few days I will be putting up my Arte y Pico award and passing it on. Thank you again.

Hi Kim, I've been away from the computer for a couple of days so I didn't realise what a worrying weekend you were having. I'm sorry to hear about your father, I wish him a speedy recovery.xx

Kim said...

Thank You Elis! Your good vibes really did work perfectly! They were awesome!

I think we all need to be reminded of simplicity sometimes, don't we?

Thanks so much....

Kim said...

Ohh, Kate! I am eager to make my blog rounds, and now with your teaser I am getting very eager!

I hope your husband came home with greater wealth after his weekend in LV!

Thanks Kate!

Kim said...

Thank You Suki! Those are words I really did need to hear and a message I also need...embrace what life holds for you when it presents itself.

You are always full of wise words for us all...

Thanks!

Kim said...

Oh Well, Babs! I am really looking forward to that large oil making an appearance on you blog. But I also know it will show itself when it is ready.

Thank you so much for your well wishes and your support through all of this! I can tell you it really has helped me and the rest of my family so much!

Painting, dust bunnies, dog hair, cat hair...it sounds as though this past weekend really has held a great deal for you...did for me, too. Along with everything else, I actually picked myself up a speeding ticket! Can you believe it? I can tell you I wasn't feeling peaceful at the time! :)

Thanks Babs!

Kim said...

Yes, Lynette! That full moon will do it for you every time, uh? Way cool...I can't wait to get around to the blogs to see what everyone has been up to...will I see that great orb on your blog? :)

Thank you for your wonderful well wishes...they have worked beautifully! Really! I could feel all the wonderful energy from all of my art friends...it felt as though you were all right there behind me.

Thanks Lynette!

Kim said...

You are so right, San! Art is so up and down like life. That is why I always say ART IS LIFE! It really is, isn't it?

I can't wait to see what you have ended up with after your weekend of work! I know it has to be awesome....oh, go ahead and show the one which makes you cringe...it might end up being your NY painting :)

Awe, San! What a lovely honor. I am going to head right over there to see what you have to share with me! Gosh, an award from San Meredith...now how big is my head? Well it is huge normally...tonight, I will not be able to fit through the door!

Thanks, San!

Kim said...

Thank you, Jess! He is doing just fine! I appreciate your wishes for a healthy recovery. It will be very long, but he is going to be just fine. Thank you!

I hope that your father continues to recover well! My thoughts are with you! xx

Kim said...

Thank you, Fiona! He is doing well...and begins physical therapy tomorrow...stitches come out, too!

The doctor even said, "He is a tough guy!" That isn't too shabby at 70 is it?
