Desert Landscape

Remember the picture of the barn in the snow I painted earlier this winter? Well the library had Paul Dinoff come back and teach another class. This time I talked Rex's mother, Jean, into going with me. She was kind of hesitant because she had never done any painting, but being the good sport that she is, she decided to give it a try.

Here is Jean with her painting and I think she did a terrific job!! I also think she surprised herself by enjoying the class. This class has been a hit and well attended so the library is having Paul teach classes in March, April, and May. I will be on the look out for the sign up sheet, this is definitely one of those "you snooze, you loose" situations.

Speaking of the library, I can't begin to tell you how much I have been enjoying downloading books to listen to on my MP3 player. They sure make my breaks at work more enjoyable!! So now I am going to do something I rarely do.... recommend a book. The book I am recommending is "Eat, Pray, Love" by Elizabeth Gilbert. This book is worth the time to either listen to or read. The author does the narration and did an excellent job. Believe me the narrator can sometimes make or break the enjoyment of a book!!
