I didn’t finish the painting. I tried, but time ran out and I had to collect fancy clothes for us to wear at the wedding we are going to on Saturday in San Francisco. Jerry had a pair of black shoes and a pair of black dress pants. He had no sport coat. So we went to Value Village. We got 2 sport coats, and since we were there we picked up a couple of shirts. The coats fit pretty well and the shirts looked new. They were all name brands. I thought the bill would be around $35, which is good for 2 coats and 2 shirts, but when we got to the register we only paid $16. Everything was half price because it was Veterans Day. I love Value Village.
Today I washed and ironed Jerry’s one dress shirt. I assembled my wardrobe for the wedding and 2 parties. I am planning to wear the silk Chinese jacket that my daughter Clare gave me at Sarah’s wedding. It is slightly odd looking, but old ladies can get away with that sort of thing.
Then I began to paint. I had worked on it for some time yesterday, and here is it’s present state. But I will have to finish it next week, and it will be over the 7 day limit.
The birds are evening grossbeaks. The colors are not exactly accurate. I don’t really care about that; as I said to Jerry when he complained, it’s a painting, not a document.
