The Giant

My Giant came home tonight with a mission. To paint(sorry Gardners he started a new one). Do you know how exciting this is?? PROBABLY NOT, so let me explain. He hasn't picked up a brush since Christmas. That's an awfully long time to not engage in a hobby that you love, that relaxes you, and even inspires you.
So needless to say, while he paints I scrap, blog, read, watch movies and wait for the finished product. I can't peek over his shoulders or comment until the end because I have learned that these are not good things to do to someone when they are creating a masterpiece. Didn't know that before but now after many years I do. Everytime he paints it's like Christmas to me. So excited to see what this will be. Just thought I would share and when he's done maybe a picture will appear here of the finished product.

If he painted regularly, then you wouldn't have to do Christmas shopping--you could just give paintings as gifts. His paintings are very nice.

Moses+painting=good stuff. Every time I go into Comma Coffee in Carson, I have to point out Moses' painting to somebody.

jeni- there are a few in his office. the one that he did recently is the big red guy on his knees. check it out next time you are up there.
georgia- you know he has had a waiting list from family and friends for a quite a while and i think that he just gets on a roll and then takes long breaks. gotta get em while he's rolling.
david- thanks for bringing up the sore topic of the lil lady who now hangs at comma coffee. not happy that he MADE me give that one away. not happy!!!
