The first picture shows Dad and Jamie doing their father-daughter dance, compliments of Jamie's friend, Ally. They planned to cha cha to Tommy Dorsey's "Tea for Two" but the DJ threw them a curve ball and played a different, much faster rendition. The two adapted beautifully and apparently impressed the crowd. Daughter Deborah said they would be talking about that dance with the grandchildren!
We had the pleasure of having possession of the bridal and attendant bouquet's after the wedding and using them to carry through the wedding colors into the brunch. I am so taken with the modern style of the flowers, so different than the cascading bouquets in my wedding decade. I took some pictures and hope to paint them one of these days. Jamie's Lilies were just fabulous and will be so much fun to paint.>
Today I returned to art after delivering the rented chairs we used to augment seating at the brunch back to the rental place. In my drawing class this morning, we continued drawing the doll and applying pastels. Instructor Bob asked us to start over after demoing an approach. I don't think I will have the patience to master pastels, though I am enjoying doing the class work. I've put a lot of hours (though far short of the 10,000 hours to achieve mastery) into watermedia and that is my first love. To my son, Jeff who finds dolls freakie, hang in there. Next week we revert back to simple still lifes.
I will be spending my next few weeks preparing for Silicon Valley Open Studios. I'll keep you posted on progress on the blog.
