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

IN MY OPINION….August, 2019…. Pat Grabill

I thought perhaps that the two or three of you who actually read this blog (am I overestimating?) might like to learn a bit about the judging process for the Juried Show.  Traditionally, the judge hired to choose the paintings for the show is a person well-known in the world of watercolor artists, someone who has no particular connection to the state of Indiana or

In My Opinion…July, 2019

By Pat Grabill I call this blog "In My Opinion" because that's what it is--just my opinion.  Those of you who know me, and especially those of you who know me well, are aware that I have an opinion about many things--not everything (sometimes I just don't care), but many things.  What my friends know--and acquaintances don’t' realize--is that I really don't care whether anyone
