Balloon Man

This toile is designed to look old and kind of faded (I believe?) and I love how it makes my fellow look older and as if he has already lived an interesting life.

Yesterday we had snow and sleet, plus Patriots’ Day activities which included a road race, a reenactment of one of the first battles of the Revolutionary War, and a parade through town. Brrr. It is very strange to be working with the sound of muskets in the background! Today is Patriots’ Day and it is pouring down rain for the Boston Marathon. We have been in our house for 30 years now and this is the first Patriots’ Day that I can remember where there aren’t any daffodils blooming in front of my house yet. I saw a chart that showed we are 15 to 20 days late for Spring this year.
