Long Absence

What do I blog about after a 3 month hiatus? Well, I won't bore you with a lot of details but just some hilights. My schedule for this year has been very full.
Having grandchildren, May was a time for a graduation and a dance recital. In June, my friend from Israel visited with us for a few days. The 28th was a very special day. It was the celebration of the graduating class 50 years ago from the Kentucky Baptist Hospital School of Nursing. There were 38 graduates. Of those, 4 that I know of have graduated to a much higher plane - the eternal one for which we should all be anxiously looking toward. 13 of us attended the reunion. I had seen only 4 of them since graduation or since my wedding the following year. What a joy it was to see them and renew friendships!
In July, I was privileged to study portrait painting on Porcelain with Mariela Villasmil-Kaminski. In fact, I took two classes. I have 2 portraits of which I am very proud. One is of me to go along beside the one I painted earlier of my husband at age 19 in his US Navy uniform. Mine is when I was 19 in my student nurse 2nd year (Junior) uniform. The second one I painted will remain a secret until I reveal it to the person whom I painted. I will post both of them soon.
Lest I bore you with details, I will save the rest of the update for the next post.
Here is a bread and butter dish on which I painted an apple.
