Janathon Day 24 and work on my current art piece

Village Market, Mack
Today I got my exercise (47 minutes) running errands on foot.  I went to the post office (and mailed two books to my grandson Frankie), to the pharmacy (and got a new prescription), and to the Village Market for groceries (which I proceeded to make into a yummy dinner of salmon and seafood Newberg with vegetables.).

Then I worked in my oil panting--so messy, I worked on it last night when I couldn't sleep, in the morning today and again in the evening after dinner.  It is still not done, but closer.

Tonight's work, #4
The painting is still very wet (and as yet unfinished) which means I cannot scan it and it is hard to photograph well.

Glad to see that you are still getting your exercise Mary, not so good that you are still not sleeping well. I feel I am getting to know Keith´s face very well!

Thanks, John. I am getting really bored writing about my exercise program--only a few more days and I'll be done.

Unfortunately, my paintings of Keith are imperfect and the likenesses aren't quite on.
