‘Hallelujah’

So this morning I was not feeling very inspired about too much.  It’s cloudy and raining.  The weekend looks pretty drab weatherwise.  As usual the Artist/Husband was in his studio working on something.  He came out with the sketch above of Leonard Cohen, yes he sketched that in about an hour.  He gave it to me and told me to go hang this above my computer where I could see it.  He told me to get inspired and go [...]

That was the beginning of a canvas he painted over.  Here is the Masterpiece… I will put up some of the other ones later today. [...]

The Artist

Good Wednesday morning.  It’s still chilly but the sun is getting warmer so it should not be long before the warmer weather gets here. The Artist was home for a few days catching up on some much needed R & R.  Always love to have him here with me. We share coffee in the morning and have talk about the day ahead.  He’s a runner so that is usually the first thing on his schedule which fits right with mine. [...]
