The RePaving (Asphalt) has started!

Hooray! the first layer has been laid....we can drive on it a little.  Decided to paint my HollyHocks against our brick wall.  The Garage is across the street and I just put in a hint of the new Asphalt.  It will be so nice to get back to "normal."   :-)

Our Street is gone...New Asphalt Tomorrow!


We are having our Road (that we live on) resurfaced....So these are some of the pieces of equipment we have been dealing with (lots of noise, too) for almost a week now.  We can't park in our garages, or driveways--we park about a block away.  Like I said, it's been about a week....so hopefully we will have new Asphalt tomorrow!  We will totally appreciate our "driveway & attached garage"  :-)  Maybe I'll go back to sketching flowers & trees......

A Closer Look with Dr. Ainsworth

Our Pastor is away on Vacation, so one of our favorite (other) Pastors filled in....He's Dr. Ainsworth, but we call him "Gordie".  I even put some of my blooming HollyHocks in the notes for color.  The choral trio was excellent--better than the Gaithers'  :-)   And we 'sent off' a group of our Youth Group to the Detroit InnerCity
for fixing-up ministries.  We do have an "involved Church."

Yellow Lady Slippers (Hemingway Pointe--Lake Charlevoix)

My Sister-in-Law sent me a picture of the Yellow Lady Slippers growing in the woods behind their Condo up North on Lake Charlevoix (Hemingway Pointe).  I couldn't resist sketching/watercoloring some of them and just had to post them.  Thanks Betty!
Love these and would love to find some pink ones :-)

"Cover to Cover Series"

We are into the Book of Isaiah now...."Restoration Paths"   I just had to paint Joyce wearing her Shirt with the great big flower on the back and sleeves--it takes my eye every time!  No one else I know has one with that big a flower!  I'm easily entertained :-)

Memorial Day 2014

I may have posted this previously--but wanted something for Memorial Day.  This is a sketch of our Flag in our Adult Bible Fellowship (Sunday School) Room. 

Sunday Memorial Day Weekend

 "Restoration Paths" is the name of the continuing Studies the Pastor is covering in the "Cover to Cover" (thru the Bible) Series for our Sunday Morning Worship Services.
We had our Brass Orchestra and Choir for the music this a.m.
