Our Newest Painting

Our most favorite artist has once again painted what we consider to be a masterpiece! Didn't Miss Barbara do an awesome job?!

Does this painting remind you of anyone?
It wasn't exactly the easiest thing to photograph but you get the idea! It's just beautiful in person! How the heck does she make the goblets look like glass in the painting? It's magic! And we just love the watermelon trim along the top!

Where are we going to hang it, mom?
We need to decide soon!
Friday we leave for Nantucket and we've been helping mom pile stuff for our trip!
The first thing that happened this morning is that I got groomed! No sweating on the beach for me!
We need to run~
There's lots to do to get ready before our trip! We are so excited and just can't wait!

So until next time...................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

The painting is wonderful.

We're all so jealous that you guys are going to the beach. Can you squeeze nine of us in the car with you? Tsar doesn't like the beach so he can stay here.

Have a great time and take lots of pictures to show us.

Hero said...

That is a beautiful painting! I really need to try a watermelon. It seems as if everyone is eating it these days except me!

Rocky Creek Scotties and Java said...

Our Mom is a tad jealous - you guys have so many paintings and she can't even get a decent photograph of all of us together. She sees it in her mind, but just can't get it together.

We were thinking you would be going to Nantucket soon!! Hope you have fun.

XOXO
Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

Hey M&M,
That is a great painting. Ms. Barbara really did do an awesome job. And it's so accurate too; you've got food in your mouths. That's how we all know that it is really you two and not some imposters. What a great time you'll have in Nantucket. Our dad learned a limerick in the navy about that place but he doesn't want us to type it in. We bet you'll have fun: hot dogs, burgers, salt water taffy, watermeol, lobster, clams, baked potatoes, mustard, ketchup, relish and ICE CREAM, and all the other exotic foods. An Airedale's dream vacation; well at least and M&M dream. Oh yea: M&M they melt in your mouth, not in your hand. How cool. Y'all be safe and don't get sunburnt.

You have such amazing paintings! The latest is fabulous.

Did my mom ever mention that she and dad were married in CT? We live in California, but dad's family is in Connecticut....and when they were married, they stayed in a cottage on the coast in Branford, CT. A lovely spot they say!

Have a wonderful trip!
