Yesterday, I left this pile of fun (painting my stained woodwork white)
and ran off to a day of real fun with a friend.

We visited the beautiful new Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia.
The Barnes houses the incredible collection of Dr. Albert C. Barnes, and
includes works by Renoir, Picasso, Cezanne, Monet, Manet, Matisse, Van Gogh,
Seurat, Sisley, Soutine (not one of our favorites), Glackins,
Rousseau, Gauguin, Modigliani, Degas and more.

Some of my favorites:

Today, back to woodwork.

so busy

Oh, soooo busy!  
I did take time to stroll through my garden today.  Finally, a sunny day to do that.
This is the first year for my star gazers.  Aren't they just begging to be painted?

I have been painting my bathroom walls and vanity & I need to move on to more woodwork painting.  
I'm changing all my woodwork to white, so that means sand, caulk, prime, paint.
It's so time consuming, but I love the results!

Before I tackle that, I'm going to watercolor.
Another French chair is in the works.

Have a good rest of the weekend.  Newsroom is on tonight!
