Monday Monday!

I'm planning to submit to the Johnson Creek Watershed exhibit; the images are due for jurying this week. I'll be going to another location that is "on the list" tomorrow. 

During my afternoon walk I stopped by to photograph the Convent. Isn't funny how some buildings seem to be old friends?

Speaking of old friends, I also paid my car "Honey" a visit at her garage (where she is stored) and gave her the once-a-week drive.  You know, I'd keep her in my driveway, except she is an attractive nuisance for hooligans. She started right up and drove like a dream.

I really love the painting above. It's the colors that just get me...and the water looks wet.

'Upon Reflection!' Such a lovely piece, the reflections simply flow off the page - what a wonderful series of landscapes you've put up here just recently - if they don't wow the jury then I don't know what....!

Old buildings are my 'life' ... them and boats! So I know what you mean.

Triumph went the way of all the British automotive industry. There is no longer a British Car manufacturer (that's owned by Britain). They made great sports cars ... the Spitfire a classic!

Sorry to hear you have hooligans, as well as us!

I so love the colors you've caught in the water, Celeste! A beautiful landscape of a beautiful spot. And that Triumph is a honey indeed!

That painting is a winner!

I've not heard anyone else say that about buildings and places in general. I feel the same way about some buildings but also about some spots that I go to. Isn't it funny how we sort of "humanize" stuff?

You should have brought Honey to the classic car "Dream Cruise" here in the motor city. Millions come from all over the world with their honeys to show them off. Yours would have shown well.

Love the landscapes you've been showing this summer. Rich in color.

Holy crap! What a honey!!

That painting... stop it! It's so gorgeous!

There's no issue with the bookmark swap. However many people played were the same as who received. And there were several people late, so I just waited until I didn't want to wait any more and sent them out!

Hope you get picked for the juried show! I know you'll do well.

I can not believe that this painting is not bigger. The size is a surprise
