Oil Painting Lessons


We have been having computer problems so I have not been able to get online for a couple of days. Last night our tech-genius son fixed it for us. Yay!
It is spring break here so three of our granddaughters have been over to visit. They did some sewing but I think the highlight was the oil painting lessons from Grampa. They each finished one. I don't have a picture of the finished product but will try to get one today. The other highlight for me was yesterday . I had gone to bed early and left them watchnig TV. In the morning, when I got up, I found that they had cleaned the whole house. It was as neat as a pin! I offered to let them move in on a permanent basis!
I haven't done much sewing this week but hopefully I will be right back at it later today.

Lucky you! What great grandkids! From what I can see, there's a lot of talent there, and how could there not be with all the inspiration you provide!

How lucky those grandkids are! To be able to learn oilpainting from Grandpa and sewing from you!!! And what's wonderful is that they so obviously appreciate it.
