Just sat down with a cup of coffee when Russ who is the town paper delivery man came by with the Casper Star-Tribune-the state newspaper. Russ just lost his wife a month ago so it is good to see him back at work delivering. Vicki grabed the camera and caught me in a relaxed moment. Look. No crutch even. Hurts but I am persevering. Is only 35 degrees but got the paper read befor a breeze came up and got cold. So did the coffee.

Now that is real mountain man, thinking 35 degrees is warm enough to be outside to read a paper....yikes!

Oh yeah, I was outside with just my sweater in 37 degrees...a heat wave this time of year! LOL

That's a real nice picture of you Gary!

I have started a "progression" series on my blog. I would appreciate it if you would leave comments and suggestions as my painting progresses.


Thanks!
Jo

Gary, I think there's a painting in that photo somewhere. Nice caste shadow across your chest. Good to see you getting back to in the swing.

Well look at you... great photo Gary. Hope you have got the dunkin gingers with that coffee.

A definite oil painting there. WOW I see no crutches. sorry it hurts though.
No better picture than a man relaxing, coffee and paper in hand. :)

Gary, your wife has done you justice in this photo... with the amount of time you spend painting, i am surprised you have no paint on your hands and clothes!

Gosh, Gary! With the exception of the tennies, you look like my vision of a westerner for sure! Looks like a fabulous morning indeed! I am so sorry to hear of Russ' loss. I hope that his work provides a bit of a diversion for him. I'm sure it is much needed. Love the photo below too. Our snow is melting here as well, though we've only had a couple of days in the mid to upper 30's here. Spring is sure to follow!

Hi Sherry.
With my foot all catywompus probably for ever now I probably will never get into cowboy boots again. That is fine. Never liked wearing them anyway. Now I can definitely go to church in my tennies and have a good excuse. That will match the tie I have never worn.
Russ should get along fine. He is a neat old fellow. Dubois being a retirement town has a lot of elderly folks and there are a lot of things going on for them.
Spring? I have heard of that. Would be kinda neat to see it sometime. Here we get freezing weather and snows up to 4th of July then the 5th it gets up to 80.
I mention to new comers that it is only 5 more months befor winter starts again. They don't know what I am talking about.
Your painting is really progressing well Jo. Good going.

I have a feeling the spring in your step will arrive with the season. And maybe emerge as slowly...

Keep smiling. It helps!

Now that is one happy painter!

Gary Keimig said...

I hope it is not the same spring of step as I had when I bounced off the ground last September, Susan.lol
Hi Denny. Well being an artist is much better than working for a living. And happier.

Thoroughly enjoy your work.


Glad to see you wheeling around.

DEB said...

Gary - I agree. This would make an excellent self portrait! And what a neat, outdoor environment you get to live in! All of us here in suburbia are jealous for sure!

Nice picture, you definitely look like a cowboy there. Love your blogs and your art.
