THE SUNDAY POST: Hot and Bothered

Today, I am again taking part in  THE SUNDAY POST from The Caffeinated Reviewer. It’s a great opportunity to meet up with new, and old  readers, and other bloggers! After you hang out here a while, I hope you’ll check out THE CAFFEINATED REVIEWER ‘s link up.

Kimba The Sunday Post

Whew! Was it ever hot Sunday through Wednesday but Thursday it turned cool and foggy.  I was nearly crushed by some of our new porch railing but escaped with a sore back and a couple of bruises.    My friend’s daughter was supposed to get married outside Saturday and the weather cooperated; it was a beautiful event and my husband even danced with me.   I have been staying offline when I am not blogging so I can paint more. I am working (with permission) from a picture my friend took of her children.

 

This is the painting I am working on – it is still a work in progress!

Last Week!

M: MRS. SINCLAIR’S SUITCASE Personal Histories Collide (audio)

Mrs Sinclair's Suitcase BannerThis story was about slighty pre-war and WWII England, and some Polish Airmen who escaped to England to fight after Hitler annexed Poland. I looked for images from that period and/or area.

T: Because, … Cake, etc. THE COINCIDENCE OF COCONUT CAKE

This story took place in a foodie’s Wisconsin: fried cheese curd and frozen custard figured heavily and since those two things stuck in my head,…

W: RUINATION! THE ART OF SINNING by Sabrina Jeffries

The Art of Sinning Banner

Herein the hero and heroine attend a masquerade ball so I found an image of that I could use.

 

TH: Second Chances: MAGIC BURNS by Illona Andrews

A deity who takes the shape of a crow is a bad guy in this story. I am fond of crows so had no trouble using this picture; I split it down the center.

F: Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown POV and Family Connection

I have always loved this portrayal of Macbeth’s Witches by Daniel Gardner, 1775 using three famous women from the 18th century.

“Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire and Elizabeth Lamb, Viscountess Melbourne – the most famous political hostesses and society beauties of their day – are shown gathered around the witches’ cauldron alongside their friend, the sculptor Anne Seymour Damer.”
