New Headers

I thought that I'd try new headers for the Blog this year and decided I was going to use paintings from around the house that Mac has painted through the years.  I'll try to change the header each week, I'm pretty sure we have that many paintings.
The first one was painted more than 40 years ago, I say he painted it when we lived in Texas, but he says that he at least started it when we were first living in Germany.  Either way, paintings have come and gone through the years, but this one still remains a favorite of mine.  I had a round can with this painted on the lid and I asked him to paint me a copy of it.  I love how the colors have mellowed through the years.


  1. Its beautiful, such a talent!

  2. Mac is so talented, it will be interesting to see more of his paintings.

  3. Wow, it's stunning. What a good idea to use Mac's paintings as headers.

  4. I can see why it's a favourite, I love it. He's really captured the textures. I'm looking forward to seeing more.

  5. Wow. I'm very impressed - by Mac's amazing pictures and by your amazing tidying. I sympathise in the gone-daughter sadness. At least we have one in the same town and a son not too far away. Actually, that doesn't help. I want them all here!

  6. It does have lovely soft colours. How nice to be surrounded by your husband's handiwork. I look forward to seeing more of it.

  7. Fantastic picture - what a talent. I'm very impressed with your tidy closet. Good luck with the rest of your resolutions.
    Love from Mum
