|Heading Uptown 18x24" Acrylic/Mixed Media|
Home Sweet Home, finally! I've been out of town for about 10 days. No sooner did we get our water, heat and power back, (which took 2 weeks, due to "Sandy") then we had to pack up and rush to Las Vegas for a tradeshow. During that time we took a day trip to the Grand Canyon, and climbed down, as well as back up. (OMG)
Now that things are kinda sorta under control, I'm looking forward to painting in less chaotic conditions. Our property is still a mess and we have lots of insurance related homework to do before things can be rebuilt. But I'm very grateful - not only the services, water/heat/power, that are so easily taken for granted, but all the support from friends - those who offered help in the aftermath and especially those who raised funds via painting auctions, that are helping us move onward. A little help goes a long way. I thank everyone that offered support to me and the other Sandy survivors.
On another note, many people inquired about "the girls", our polish chickens, and how they fared through the storm. Thank you for asking. Although their coop was quite vulnerable in 90 mph wind conditions, someone was smiling upon them and by the looks of it, not a feather was ruffled. They're doing just swell and look as dapper as ever. Here's a photo of Gladys, Phyllis, and Esther (from front to back).
