It's coming up to that time of year again....

when we go to the Station Gallery in Whitby for the fund raiser and in turn we get to pick out a painting.  We went last year and I wrote about it here and here.  It doesn't happen until the end of the month, which is just as well as this year I think I am going to have a hard time narrowing down my selections, as there is more that I like this year.  Here is a link to the ones for this year, are there any that you would go for?  I am a floral/landscape type of gal, and prefer watercolours over oils.  As always the sculptures leave a lot to be desired, so hopefully they will all go in a flash as we wouldn't appreciate them. 

I am hoping there is the chocolate display again, as they were yummy last year.........I know I am supposed to be on a diet!!!

Molly had a busy morning as first we had a coyote in the back garden quite close to the deck.  It was the closest one has been to the house.  Molly went crazy, thank goodness she was in the house.  She had only just come back in from outside.  I do not like them coming that close to the house.  Then a rabbit turned up by the shed, so that kept her out of mischief for ages watching that.  All the time she was wagging her tale.  Then she went downstairs into the basement where a chipmunk was sitting outside beside the patio door eating bird seed.  Obviously that drove Molly crazy.  So with all that activity she had to have a rest....


She looks comfortable doesn't she!!

You do have some different animals coming by the house. Not sure I would like to come face to face with a coyote. When you said Whitby I immediately thought of Whitby in the UK.

I glanced through the gallery...seen a couple or three I would not mind having...seen some others I would have loved to have had in a fabric!

I bet you don't dare let Molly out without keeping tabs on her with the coyotes around.

Aren't dogs fun. Sounds like Molly definitely keeps you entertained. We don't see coyotes too close to our house although when we walk outside we can hear them howling. Hugs

There certainly are some lovely paintings available! I like Marsh on the Minden Road and Rainy Night best!

Molly sure does look comfortable after her busy day!
