As Black As Night

Here is another watercolor painting prompted by a challenge in the Fun and Free Journaling Challenge on Facebook:  As Black As Night.

As Black As Night, Jeanne Turner McBrayer, 2015

This is inspired by the sky when we leave my brother's house in the morning to drive to Sarasota, Florida.  It is still very dark, with Orion, the moon, Venus, or other celestial bodies still visible in the sky.  The palms looks like dark shapes with ghostly trunks.

The good news is that this week the treatments will begin about an hour later, and only last for twenty minutes instead of an hour.    He will be finished with them on October 16.

We stopped at a different Amish restaurant in Sarasota on Friday morning...Der Dutchman.  Almost all of the people working there wore Amish dress.  Here are two quilts that were hanging in the sunroom, where we ate our breakfast.

My brother's sons came home from Florida State University for the weekend.  It was great to see them.  We all went to Sanibel Island on Saturday.  

Here is my husband Charlie taking a family photo for them on the beach.

That night we had a great dinner at their home, with Anna's parents attending as well.

We are so lucky to be doing this cancer treatment thing in a beautiful place with a chance to be with family.
