R.I.P. My Poor Computer

My computer finally kicked the bucket. It got to the point where it wouldn't let me in at all. So I really have been off-line. I took it to the "computer hospital" this morning. I know I am planning to buy a new one but I was advised to make sure that all my problems are cleared up on my existing computer, I'm hoping to pass it on to my grand kids to help them with homework when they are visiting. Anyway, the "computer doctor" said that he could definitely cure my "baby" and he won't charge me an arm and a leg. Hopefully, I will have a healthy computer again by Wednesday.

Finished Project

I'm still enjoying painting my "other world" paintings. I've painted lots of different subjects in my lifetime but this is becoming a fun creative project. They start out so simple and then take on this out of this world feel to them.

It's a little fantasy and a little science fiction. I've been doing a lot of thumbnail drawings using basic shapes while waiting in waiting rooms at the DMV, auto repair shops, the doctor's office and other places that eat up your time and your day. Then I come home and turn the thumbnails into paintings.

TGIT Thank God It's Tuesday

I'm a little late with my TGIT post. Today was a 'get out and enjoy the day'. Not too hot for a change in Sacramento.

I'm not able to take a vacation yet so I'm still doing some local site seeing. I love my camera and I love taking photographs. So, here are photos of my day in the sun in Old Sacramento.
