Ann submitted paintings to a magazine.
The magazine chose to feature them.
She was given several one-year subscriptions to the magazine.
She offered a subscription to Dave and me.
A painting in one issue caught my eye.
I tore out the page.
It ended up in a pile of other saved pages and images over a year ago.
Last week the pile got shoved in a closet to make way for Caroline and Emmy's visit.
Over the weekend Caroline and Emmy took me on a belated birthday shopping trip.
I purchased three colors of paint that Jane often mentions.
Caroline and Emmy returned to Virginia.
I started to reassemble my studio.
I bumped into the magazine page when the pile fell on the floor.
I saw it as a source of lines to look at while I released inner energy through a charcoal pencil.
I wanted to follow Debora's suggestion that I make some sketches and use them for color studies.
I wanted to play with my new paints.
I sketched and painted.
A line-and-color study now graces my home.
