It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (September 30): 09/30/19
With both cat portraits finished, it was time to put the hardware on their backs and get them hung in the den. I did the hanging myself and I'm too short to reach high enough on the left side. So right now, Tortuga's portrait is a little lower down than I'd like. My husband says he likes it uneven like this because it makes Salmon (on the right) look smugger.
Over the fourth of July we watched a fireworks show, our first one in five years. I had a new lens with me and had fun both watching and photographing. Going over my recent photos made me want to do a series of fireworks paintings.
I'm doing two different projects snow. The first is a series of acrylic paint sketches on paper for Project Sketchbook. The second will be a series of acrylic paintings on stretched canvas. How many and what sizes, I haven't decided yet. I am starting off the canvas series with a photograph from the 2014 finale we watched in Oregon.
My husband continues to enjoy the new smoker. Last week's brisket was amazing. This week he's doing two pork shoulders and a brisket. Some of the pork he's planning to take to work. His coworkers have been begging him to share.

Love the cat pictures. It’s hard to paint faces—-be they people or even cats.
I like the look of Nevers and The Boney Hand. You read so many children’s books. I bet it is difficult to decide what to nominate for the Cybils.
Have a great week.

Nevers wasn't what I had hoped it would be. The Boney Hand was fun. I hope there is a third book in that series. So far the books I would have nominated have been. I'll wait to see if anything is overlooked.
