Green Scene -- #9

Green Paint -- I'm ending this series with the photo that I had planned to begin with. Green is a prominent paint color in our house as it is on the walls of the kitchen, dining area, and our bedroom. It is a very soothing green and goes well with just about anything.

This painting hangs in our dining area. For the first 30 years of my life it hung in my Grandmother's dining area. It is one of my uncle's early paintings, and Grandma told me I could have it after her death. It reminds me of many happy meals at Grandma's.

Today is Michael's birthday so we are celebrating with a family day. We may introduce the children to bowling. Everyone is just about over their flu. Poor Em is still off work with hers and I'm coming down with the cold part (so far I have escaped the fever).

Hi Heather, have you ever taken up painting? I'm sure you must be great at it with all those artistic genes running through your family. What a lovely painting and so nice to have something that reminds you of your grandmother.
Happy Birthday to Michael. Hope you all have a nice day celebrating together, and I hope you all are feeling better soon.

I never knew the story behind that painting. Isn't it special to have something with a story behind it? I have a paint-by-number of my grandfather's that means a lot to me. It's not in the dining room though. :>}

Happy Birthday Michael!
