This is kind of fun. My grandmother, who I called Bammy, poses with my daughter Jen. I was the first grandchild for Bammy and she didn't want to be called Granny or Grandmother. Her name was Aimee and the best I could do was Bammy. All of her grandchildren ended up calling her that. When my mother became a grandmother, she was Gammy, and now I am Cammy. It works for us!
Jen was about four years old when the picture was taken. It was in Anderson, California.

One of the fun things they did was to go to the Reading Terminal Market. They are still talking about it and it sounds like it was a great place. While there, they bought me some olive oils and vinegars from a shop called "The Tubby Olive." The little painting on the thank you card is from the shop logo. Very cute!
I've improved some of my cooking with "Tuscan Herb Olive Oil," "Basil Olive Oil," "Fig Balsamic Vinegar" and "Sicilian Lemon Balsamic Vinegar." YUM!

My painting "River Home" was selected to be in the current juried Hill Center show. The opening reception is Wednesday, March 13 from 6:30-8:30, and I plan to be there. I got a chance to preview the work in the show when I went to a different event last Friday. Some amazing work, and a lot of variety. It is worth seeing.
The address of the Hill Center is 921 Pennsylvania Ave SE. The show will be up until April 28.

This is another painting of Jerry sitting in the leather chair. The first one was small--a thank you card to Nadia for cat-sitting while we were in California for Jenifer's wedding. I posted it on this blog in January.
I did this bigger version (18"x 24" framed) and I am not sure why. It was fun, though, and that black on the end of his tail really is his darkest marking. What this doesn't show is a patch on his belly that I call his belly button. The funny thing for me is that he only sat in that pose in the chair once...that I know of Well, I guess I am glad I got the picture.
