Happy Hump-Day - Already !
I have been suffering thorough a bad cold
that started in my throat, went to my chest and
now my aching head.
Today... I am just dealing with it as best I can.
I didn't get much done on my art though
I started a painting of a deer in the thicket/ woods
|my photograph of a curious deer|
It is to be made from this photo
that I took a few years ago in the woods
The color got muddy so I had to paint over much of it
and start over but I did keep the deer
the green is branches that will be added again and hopefully
not get muddy again
|my tools for painting|
|I had to re-do the background and start over|
This deer was spying on us one spring day
my son was planning and eventually built
a foot bridge along a rustic path
in a public nature trail here in Loveland
on some land called The Simpson Conservancy.
It was his Eagle Scout project.
There was a bit of a fight against doing it
from a local man that lives nearby
and he did not think anyone should disturb
or alter the natural path ...
and a bridge was really raising his rankles.
But Drew stood his ground and was respectful
He promised to keep the area clean
and keep the bridge in nice condition.
I think I may even dig up a photo or two of his bridge
The whole boy scout troop helped to build it
and my son was in charge of the
planning and management of the work.
