A 'Commended' At Local Art Show!!

Gilded Quills

I have been quite busy today! The deisel engine on our sailing boat is about 20 years old and has been playing up (refusing to start!) My husband and a sailing friend have taken it to bits and I have delivered them to appropriate engineers this morning to be renovated! Hopfully we may have a functioning engine by next weekend!! This would not have been possible without our sailing friend who we affectionately refer to as 'MacGyver' because he can fix anything, anywhere, anytime!! This afternoon I collected some of my paintings from the local Art Show and discovered that the pastel "Gilded Quills" had received a "Commended". Made my Day!! Hope to have time to do more on Peli Can Can tomorrow! If you are a regular visitor to my blog or website you will probably have noticed that i have a fascination with Pelicans. I think they are beautiful exotic birds. I love the way they can climb high in thermals and the way they cruise peacefully along the rivers and shorelines in search of fish. I could definately come back as a Pelican!! If you enjoyed this post please consider becoming a follower of my blog. See the Followers section down the right side of my blog.
