Day off in school in remembrance of Those Who Have Served. While those memories are surrounding and reminding us, we paint and create and ruminate. Bennie enjoys getting lost in the fluid acrylic paints, making art and making mistakes. I've let my larger canvases sit awhile to play with the smaller ones. Today, I am enjoying the shading created by a friendly filbert or two. Soon, our Little Family will gather for lunch in honor of their grandfather who served in the Korean War and a great grandmother who, family stories tell, served in the OSS.
