It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (August 12): 08/12/19
After most of the summer of working on it, I finished the "Let's Eat" painting. I just hit my groove last week and before I knew it, it was done.
On Thursday we met up with a bunch of my daughter's friends and went swimming at the local lagoon. Maybe it was the weather (cool and windy) or maybe it's too late in the summer (some schools have started) but none of the swim camps were there. The sea gulls outnumbered the people, 3 to 1.
Last week I also started on the companion piece to "Let's Eat." This one I'm calling "Neighbors." It's the same size as the previous painting.

Thank you. It's been a good week of reading so far.

Your paintings are beautiful. I bet it was nice at the lagoon without the crowds.
Your current and upcoming reads all look good. I love the cover of Booking the Crook. And All of Us With Wings looks really good. I hope you enjoy them!
Have a great week!

It was a nice day at the lagoon, although it could have been a little warmer. Of course this week it's 30 degrees warmer and frankly too hot. I'm reading Booking the Crook right now. All of Us with Wings deals with some difficult subjects but was worth the read. I'll be reviewing it soon.

I love your finished painting. The turkey is especially realistic, but it's the juxtaposition of turkey with cat that is fascinating.
So many good books here...All of Us With Wings...Everything I Know About You...If It Makes You Happy...I need to look for all of these.
Have a great week!

Thanks. The painting is based on something I witnessed at a feral cat colony in town. I've now read All of Us with Wings, Everything I Know About You, and will be reviewing them and If It Makes You Happy soon.

That lagoon looks like a wonderful place to spend a sunny afternoon.
Congrats on finishing the painting, it’s wonderful.
Have a great reading week

The lagoon is a nice place for an afternoon swim. I'm glad you like the painting.

Gosh, all your books this week are new to be. The Laurie Cass looks fun.

I'm on page 75 right now of the Laurie Cass mystery.

Great assortment of books. I prefer swimming when it isn't so crowded. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
Comment #12: Wednesday, August 14, 2019 at 20:56:00
I've never seen the lagoon as empty as it was.
Comment #13: Monday, August 12, 2019 at 15:25:34
You have quite the variation in books this week! I hope you have a great reading week and stop by if you get a chance:
Comment #14: Wednesday, August 14, 2019 at 20:57:00
I usually do. I try to avoid focusing on just one genre, though I do have my favorites.
Comment #15: Monday, August 12, 2019 at 17:03:44
I love your photos and paintings. Enjoy your books, and thanks for visiting my blog.

Thank you. I'll have progress to share next week.

Ooh, didn't know that was around. How neat! If you're on IG, 67cloverstudio paints also; Tracey paints neat animals and sea life.

Thank you for the recommendation.

That lagoon is gorgeous. Glad you had a nice week.
Comment #20: Wednesday, August 14, 2019 at 21:01:00
It is. It's one of a half dozen in our area. We go there because it's the closest.

Books In Bloom
Great progress this week! What did you think of Kneaded to Death? Looks like my kind of book.
Comment #22: Wednesday, August 14, 2019 at 21:02:00
I liked it and I plan to continue with the series.
