Adele’s 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge
Adele, age 12
When my big brother, Buddy, as we called him, went off to Texas A & M, I was very unhappy. I loved my big brother a lot. I knew a good guy when I saw one…even then. He grew up to be a devoted Christian minister, serving faithfully over 50 years. However, my melancholy was lessened by the knowledge that now I had full use and possession of his room AND his bicycle. My long legs never had a problem with it being a “boy’s” bike.
If the photo was in color you would see the gaudy colors Buddy selected to paint his bike…..of all things, maroon and white. And look at those striped handlebars. And what about the bathing suit, you ask? My bathing suit was my favorite set of play clothes, whether I went swimming or not. And hey, it was a two piece..not that I cared. At that time clothes and looks meant nothing to me…only play and having fun.
Why am I telling you all this? Because my Day 6 painting has a bike in it and I was reminded of “my” one and only bike.
“A Good Place To Stop”

“A Good Place To Stop” shows yet another beautiful vacation location in Greece. Wouldn’t that be a lovely place to stay for a few days and nights? I’m told by good authority that it is indeed a lovely place to stay.
Part of my procedure in this series of paintings is the pen and ink sketch which I do first, of course. I like to keep the sketch as loose as possible, while still depicting the scene somewhat accurately.
“You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence,
with eternal pleasures at your right hand.”
