This was called Endangered Panda and if you look at the bottom of the painting you will see it painted on the canvas. This was painted in 1984 on a 20x24 canvas board. The boards that I used in 1984 have not held up like I would like them too but the proprietor of the local art store assured me that today they are made with attention to preservation and will hold up better. This painting is a favorite of mine and has hung in my homes ever since it was painted.
Beverly and Bob are safely home and had a wonderful 18 days in Italy, Greece, Turkey and Croatia. We watched the raw videos from the trip last night and they were wonderful. The places they visited were often breathtaking. Beverly and I started falling asleep and just couldn't stay awake when we got to the last day at the Vatican. Finally, we cried "Quit" and went to bed at 9:00 p.m. I'm so glad to have them home.
This photo is the 1st one shared with me. It is the 1st formal night of their 12 day cruise. Pretty fancy, huh?
