It's Finished And Here It Is!!!

This is a photo of the actual photograph I used as my inspiration.
So here it is!  Hope you all like it.  I took a lot of liberties with this painting, but changing the look of the mountains and rock in the foreground.

Hey Ya'll,

Just wanted to say thanks for all of you still interested in seeing my latest completed painting!  It is a variation of the photo taken by my Mother-In-Law.  The photo took 2nd place in the Nevada Magazine that year.  Since then, I have now completed 3 paintings based on it.  And I am not planning on painting another one!!!

Today, I ended up spending several hours at Sams Club/Walmart, as Walt forgot and left the headlights on yesterday in the truck and drained the batteries.  We were able to get them jumped by AAA, but since they are the original batteries in the truck and it is a 2002, we decided it was a good idea to just replace them.  So...guess who got to go spend half the day getting the batteries changed?  Ahem!  Moi!!

So I didn't get anything else accomplished today.  I am going to attempt to read everyone's blogs in the next few days, so hopefully you will be seeing my leave comments more often from now on.

In other news, Walt finally got the call from the Specialist's office in San Francisco, providing the information on his next appointments.  He needs to go back on June 18th for his Ultrasound to rule out Prostate Cancer.  This appointment is set for 12:30, then we have to wait around until 3pm on the same day, to see the Specialist again.

So we will need to be there no later than 11:00-11:30 so he can administer the enema to himself.  He has to do the enema at least 1 hour prior to the Ultrasound and since we have a couple hour drive to get there, he really doesn't want to be driving, or for that matter, be in the car during this time, as he will need to be in the bathroom!!!  So we are anticipating this visit to be a really long day!!

We will have to leave our house by 8:30-9:00 and we won't be out of the last appointment until at least 4pm if not 5pm like the last time!  And this is on a Friday, so we will have to spend a couple of additional hours there in San Fransisco to allow the traffic to die down, meaning we probably won't get home until at least 9pm!!

Anyway, I guess I will go, Walt is calling me!!  So...till next time!

Aloha My Friends  :)

Oh beautiful, Debi. You are so talented. The colours are so rich. Let Walt know we are all thinking of him and wish him the very best :) xx

Debi said...

Thanks Cara! I have this problem in that I just can't paint in subdued colors! I love bright vibrant colors. :)

Walt will be reading this in the morning, so you actually told him yourself!! And he loves reading your blog and thinks of you more like a friend, as I do!

That is beautiful Debi.. that is one of my hidden desires to paint (in water colours) perhaps one day (sigh).. Yikes with the battery, we are facing a similar situation.. Good luck and good vibes to Walt.. hope all goes well.. hugs to you

Debi said...

Thanks Barbara! I find water colors difficult, but some have a natural ability! Take some classes at the local Junior College or Adult Education, it is an easy way to figure out if you like it or not.

Thank you for the good wishes for Walt.

Tina said...

Your painting looks beautiful! I dabble in a bit of water color now and then. I like it because it is so erasable :) I have a canvas that I have painted twice and windexed off.

Good luck with the appointments Walt!!

Debi said...

Thanks Tina!

But I think everyone believes that it is a Watercolor since it is so bright and vibrant, but it is painted in Oil! I am not talented enough to paint in Watercolors!!

Fiona said...

I think its gorgeous you are so talented! I hope everyone loved it. Tell Walt good luck and we are all sending good thoughts x

Debi said...

Thanks Fiona!! We are hoping to give it to Barry a week from tomorrow.

Your painting is fantastic. Glad you enjoy painting. I've put mine away until the fall. Need to get inspired again.

Debi said...

Thanks Sandy Lee! Well, I pretty much paint all year round! But then again, I am retired so I don't have to work too!! Whew! :)
