Portrait Art . . . and My story

I used Prismacolor Pencils, ink and pastels.  The dog has a yellow house too.  This is an ACEO.
 We all have a story to tell. . .
I like to sit outside on the Patio on a beautiful, peaceful morning, have coffee, write in my journal and listen to the fountain, the birds and watch the squirrels I have just fed. My girlfriend, Phyllis, in FL sent me flowers (memories).  We have been friends for so many years I can't count. Her husband is amazing. . and so are her friends.  She has great parties and great friends.  I miss her so much.

 Gorgeous bouquet and lasted a long time.
 My table is set.  It was a very peaceful time for me.
 I have another girlfriend since 3rd grade. . .yep all this time we have shared our fun, our happiness and our troubles. . .we email daily. She lives on the east coast so I don't see her often either, but we do keep in touch regularly.  This was her gift to me . . . the Spring doesn't last and summers are so hot here, so I am unable to be outside, the winters are horrendous and the table and chairs are up against the back wall till next Spring.
Don’t be afraid to lean into the wind, love the earth in all of it’s natural glories, and take care of each other.  Tom Brokaw

 Ducks when it was a senior center. . .
Children have driven them off. . .too much noise.
