It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (December 02): 12/02/19
We were busy with Thanksgiving preparations and three of us managed to get sick with either a light version of the flu or a nasty cold. We've all had our flu shots but we all ran fevers, needed extra sleep and were basically zombies for a few days.
Sunday, though, I finally got some painting in. I finished the Pulled Pork Sandwich piece, made progress on the Great Egret, and started a new painting, Pride Shoes.

Congratulations on finishing NaNoWroMo. I'm getting rain today but it is suppose to be dry and warm the rest of the week, which is good because I have bulbs to put in the ground while I'm off work. See what I've been reading at Girl Who Reads

I'm glad I finished early because I ended up being too busy / too sick to have the time or energy to write last week.

Past Perfect Life has had some great reviews, enjoy!
Wishing you a great reading week
Comment #4: Tuesday, December 03, 2019 at 21:14:00
I am looking forward to starting the book.

That sandwich looks so real, I felt I could pick it up to eat!
Comment #6: Tuesday, December 03, 2019 at 21:16:00
Thank you. I had fun painting it.
Comment #7: Monday, December 02, 2019 at 05:33:39
So sorry to hear that you weren't well over Thanksgiving - it's grim to fall ill during a holiday. I hope the coming week is MUCH better!
Comment #8: Tuesday, December 03, 2019 at 21:17:00
I wasn't so ill that I couldn't have fun. The rest of the family was great at pitching in. We all took turns and did our part.
Comment #9: Monday, December 02, 2019 at 08:12:31
Being sick around the holidays is the worst - I'm glad you're doing better.
I thought that top painting was a photo of your food!
Comment #10: Tuesday, December 03, 2019 at 21:21:00
I'm basically well now, minus a lingering cough. I'm pleased you mistook the painting for a photo. It was a fun one to work on.
Comment #11: Monday, December 02, 2019 at 09:18:40
Love the paintings, especially that delicious sandwich!
Have a great reading week.
Comment #12: Tuesday, December 03, 2019 at 21:24:00
Thank you. I have plans for future food paintings.
Comment #3: Monday, December 02, 2019 at 10:13:05
I just finished Theo and Vincent. One of my takeaways from that book was how much time Vincent spent practicing. We usually aren't told that. Somehow I think we get the impression that it's something born in us, to draw or not to be able to draw.
I'm looking for some good holiday reads. Let me know if you think of any. I'm almost through reading my 222 Cybils.
Have a fabulous week!

I've been painting for most of my life. I started when I was ten and save for a break when my children were young, I've continued painting. I have about three decades of practice.
I'm not much of a seasonal reader, so I can't help you with the holiday reads quest.
Comment #15: Monday, December 02, 2019 at 10:51:25
Nice looking assortment of books. I read Read and Buried and Past Perfect Life. I hope you enjoy them. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
Comment #16: Tuesday, December 03, 2019 at 21:30:00
I will be starting Read and Buried tonight and Past Perfect Life soon.
Comment #17: Monday, December 02, 2019 at 17:16:22
I'm so sorry you were all sick for the holiday. I hope you are all doing better now. Have a great week!
Comment #18: Tuesday, December 03, 2019 at 21:33:00
I'm basically well, thanks.
Comment #19: Monday, December 02, 2019 at 20:17:43
Beautiful paintings. You are very talented.
ENJOY your books and your week.
Comment #20: Tuesday, December 03, 2019 at 21:37:00
Thank you. It's more drive and work than raw talent.
Comment #21: Monday, December 02, 2019 at 21:45:23
What is it about pictures of food? :)
Comment #22: Tuesday, December 03, 2019 at 21:39:00
I don't know beyond that they're fun to make and popular.
Comment #23: Tuesday, December 03, 2019 at 15:14:52
Your egret painting is beautiful!
Comment #24: Tuesday, December 03, 2019 at 21:40:00
Thank you. It still needs work. I hope to make more progress this week.
