On Thursday we made up for it by visiting some of our best friends and sharing Thanksgiving dinner with them. They were in the mood to pamper us, and I feel totally indulged and spoiled. Hubby had spent Wednesday crafting a glorious apple pie, which was the fine finale to a delicious dinner.
Following a good long nap for everyone, we headed off to the movie theater to see "Bohemian Rhapsody," which was quite the trip— completely engrossing and very intense. What a performance by Rami Malek!
Friday I stopped off at The Green Phoenix II to see if anything had sold (no), and dropped off two newly finished pieces. While I was chatting with the store owner, a man came in and admired "Angelo's," which was hanging on the wall behind the sales desk; he decided on the spot to buy it! Of course I am thrilled. It's a fine painting and deserves a good home.

Added about an inch more to this pastel in order to make it fit the standard size mat I have for it; it had been hanging in the Phoenix but a customer knocked it off the shelf and as a result the glass broke and the custom-cut mat was ruined! Of course, it had to be the only one in the series with a custom-cut mat.

Only incremental changes on this last one, I'm afraid.
