In My Opinion…. Pat Grabill….. February 13, 2020

Happy February, Facebook Friends and WSI members.  I know that Valentine's Day is a Hallmark holiday designed to sell many greeting cards, but I like it anyway.  Historically, there really was a St. Valentine.  Reference.com provided this information:  "Historians are uncertain what stories about Valentine are true.... There were a number of Valentines recognized as saints, but the one who is most commonly referred to

In My Opinion….. Pat Grabill…… January 8, 2020

Greetings, my friends, and welcome to a new year and a new decade.  A new year always brings thoughts of change, but a new decade!  That's almost overwhelming.   To begin this new year/new decade blog, I'd like to share some ideas about art, and I'd also like to present you with some questions, which I hope you will answer because I need all the help

In My Opinion… December 9, 2019…. Pat Grabill

In My Opinion--- Season's Greetings, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa--Does it really matter WHAT we say as much as it matters HOW we say it?  This season of the year is about love, respect, forgiveness, and togetherness, so no matter what I say to someone, I need to say it with love and generosity.  I went to an Advent class at my church on

In My Opinion….. November 12, 2019….. Pat Grabill

I LOVE Thanksgiving, and I don't even like turkey.  I don't understand why our current culture glorifies Halloween--which is almost pagan in its concept--and skips over Thanksgiving and goes straight to Christmas.  In my opinion (which is what this blog IS, after all), one autumnal feast worth celebrating in addition to Thanksgiving is All Souls Day, which is always on November 2.  On that day

In My Opinion …. October, 2019 …. Pat Grabill

October always makes me think of color in general and colors in particular.  We have a covered front porch at our house, and I always have a painting hanging on the porch, just for fun.  The pumpkin painting on this page is a 24x36 acrylic on gallery-wrap canvas.  I love the autumn palette, so I used the oranges and blacks and golds of the season.

IN MY OPINION… PAT GRABILL…. September, 2019

September reminds me that after I retired from 30 years of teaching high school and middle school, I experienced a period of adjustment when classes began in the fall.  I was so used to being on a tight schedule and having a professional life regulated by bells, that I wrote a lesson plan each day to ease myself into retirement.  I even printed out the
