Yesterday afternoon was cold, dreary and gray. I happened to have the afternoon off so decided to go with Mr. Pear (still recuperating) on a short road trip.

We stopped at the gallery which has my bird watercolors for sale.
It was energizing to see these bright happy paintings on the cloudy day! Other works in the gallery were inspiring too. I hope to be painting more again soon!
Besides the art gallery and a coffee shop for a pumpkin scone to share, we visited a store with fabrics and a couple of flea markets and charity thrift stores.
These are the fat quarters (10) I picked up and below that, a pair of soft rayon pull on pants from April Cornell (a surprise find at the thrift store!). The pants are perfect for lounging or pj bottoms next summer!

More thrift store finds! A Japanese tea cup, a wooden serving dish (origin?) and a "holly" plate from England.
It was fun! Now back to work. [Maybe these new "things" can pose in a still life painting for me!]

I LOVE the holly plate! I am always on the lookout for that design! I think your paintings of birds are my favorites! You are so talented! Enjoy your day! Hope Mr. Pear continues to improve!

Looks as if you found some great things. I especially loved the piece of blue and white china and would have snapped that up. Also love the holly plate but have too many Xmas things!

New temp job has me utterly exhausted so am sorry I have not been around.
