Patrick Saunders Fine Arts Dog Portait - "Joey"

Our gift to our wonderful housing hosts for the Olmsted Plein Air Painting Invitational in Atlanta, Georgia.
 
This is Joey, the sweetest, softest, happiest seven-month-old puppy, who always came to greet us when coming or going. We thought about trying to lure him into the truck with us when we leave.

Saunders Fine Arts POTD - Breakfast at Homegrown - Atlanta, Georgia

We haven't had a sit down meal in a restaurant for over a year, due to Covid-19.

We could not have found a better place to finally enjoy restaurant dining again, sitting outside on a beautiful Atlanta day in the morning sun.
 
Thank you Homegrown for a fantastic breakfast!

Saunders Fine Arts POTD - Purple Tulip, Fort Worth Botanic Garden

Words can't express how good it feels to finally be able to do something normal. It will be a long time before we take a photo walk at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden, or anywhere else for that matter, for granted again.
