Relaxation is the primary goal when we come to Missouri. Eileen bought me a watercolor paint kit to play with. I havenít played with watercolors since kindergarten. It is fun being a kid again. This is my second effort done just this morning to capture our deck view scanned and resized for email. Richard King (bless his heart) requested so donít blame me.

Painting:By Patrick Granfors

Not exactly photographic

Hardly well composed

My novice level effort

Is certainly exposed


It really doesn’t matter

I do it for the fun

Relaxing breeze comes off the lake

To temper rays of sun


I get to choose the colors

No one will ever know

My green is dark and blue is light

Brown is more like yellow


Release the inner child

You’ll be surprised at what you find

That a simple little painting

Childhood memories can remind


No fear

The appreciation of art, so they say, is strictly in the eye of the beholder... and, what the hell, Patrick, if you had fun doing it, who am I to say it ain't art.
