reducing my dependence on foreign oils ...

yesterday was 'gamblin day'... nope not on the 'rez' ; ) -- gamblin is a local portland company that makes beautiful hi quality oil paints a world that I still have a lot to learn about.. but I'm expanding my knowledge and going local thanks to my new friendship with robert gamblin and his crew - many of whom are painters as well as paint and color masters!! ... we had a paint out yesterday at the farm .. and it was dreamy!! Here's the photo version of the day! (thanks to Pete for many of the photos)

and to top it all off I finished up the day by doing some harrowing with the boys! what a day...

First off: Great title!

And what a genteel gathering…the impressionists couldn't have looked more picturesque than this. And the results are truly gorgeous. Great work.

How do you do it? How can I find myself moved to tears yet again for yet another manifestation of YOU? I think the dinner on your farm was the last moment when I felt so happy for you two I thought I couldn't feel happier. This time a wave of "ahhhhhhh, THAT'S Clare". I hadn't even pictured this possibility. It's perfect.
