I’ve lost count; not of my birthday cards; of my paintings.

Today seemed like as good a time as any to do something about the overflow engulfing the mantle, and dresser. I tried sorting and counting. But just when I thought all were properly arranged, I’d find one I had squirreled away.

I counted way too many 8×10’s . . .

Trust me . . . there is more where these came from! I’ve done over . . .  Oh so many.

You see why I lost count.

It seems that the advice Doug’s mother gave about birthdays works well with my paintings:

If You’ve Lost Count: Celebrate – Don’t Count

Although the card from our banker got my attention – fortunately they penned a friendly message, wishing me joy and laughter.

I was young and foolish then; now I am old and foolisher. ~Mark Twain, A Biography

One thing all these paintings are teaching is l love color! And light. And Simplicity.

The candle or the mirror that reflects it.
