Oil painting on linen (10" x 10") October 15, 2010
"Today is day 27 of The Journey and I'm in the village of Swanton, Ohio, close to Toledo. I'm visiting my nieces and nephew, the Bardwells' and their children. There is 3750 miles on the odometer now.
Yesterday, Sherrie McGraw treated our whole group to the Sterling & Clark Museum. I can't say enough good things about the exhibit and Sherrie doing comments on many of the paintings. It was a great outing and it brought the Sherrie McGraw workshop to an end.
My maiden name was Bardwell and I'm really looking forward to visiting with the whole family of my much loved, belated brother. We'll have all day tomorrow and evening too.
After twelve hours of driving today I am exhausted. Good night . . ."
