There are some definite pluses to being a public servant-Dental and medical coverage, nice pension, job security and we get Remembrance Day off. I spent part of that day ruminating on the courage of former and current soldiers and feeling very grateful for their sacrifices. Yay! for freedom and democracy! While the rest of the day was spent in a rush of creative productivity and I finished this painting:..
…and got started on another one. Since it was a nice sunny day and those are becoming few and far between, I took my materials outside and painted en plein air. I also watched “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” and quite liked it. There were some genuinely beautiful scenes in that movie. (And not just the ones of Brad Pitt swimming naked. Although those were nice too! LOL)
Tonight, I’ll be going to French which will be weird since it feels like forever since I’ve gone. My instructor was sick, then I was sick, so it will probably be awkward. Ah well, I’m considering taking a French painting class in the winter, so that way I can improve both my painting and French language skills. Two birds, one stone, non?
