Look what was given to me this afternoon!

It's an oil painting!  A night-snow scene with a covered bridge and the moon reflected in the water.

The story is this.  Remember me telling about my husband going to the hardware store and meeting a guy that needed a small welding job done and they have been friends ever since...that has been at least 4 years ago.

Roger was out for a walk today and ran into H. and H. wanted another small welding job done.  So a while after Roger got back, in a while here came H. with this.  I thought he was just showing it to me, and he said, no I could keep it.  I still cannot believe it is mine.  It is not small...12x18 at least.  He has only started painting within the last year I think.

Another beautiful day today.  I am trying to sit outside as much as I can.  That is what I miss so bad in the cold days of winter.  I didn't touch my sewing machine today.....

I'd like the painting as well. We have many paintings by local artists in our home from our travels.
