What do you do when you have a day off? I spend mine with some of my best friends . . .paintbrushes, color, and family

I worked on a special chair for some people that we met last year at the Sandy Mt. Festival. Through their shopping expeditions this year they found this great antique chair. They brought it to me and asked for it to be transformed. This chair was solid while full of small cracks and weathering from the years. You could almost hear the stories it had to tell.
I also finished up this painting. I had read the quote in a book recently and it jumped out at me. So full of truth. I hope you can spend some time this week looking for the "extraordinary" in your world.
