Handsome Husband Plots a Sneaky Plan

It's time you all knew the truth. 
Sure, he's cute and all innocent looking, but behind that innocent face he's a tricky fellow, sneaky and very nearly wicked.
As I was packing my bags to travel to visit my mother recently, HH was preparing to sneak around behind my back.
In fact, he repeatedly asked me what me travel plans were, especially the leaving part. Because he's a clock-watcher by nature, I, who am deficient in that area, didn't think his attention to my departure was all that out of character.  Now I know better.
While I was away, returning to my familial roots, HH was plotting. 
You're gonna wish you were me.
To celebrate Mother's Day, my tricky, sneaky very nearly wicked husband contacted my all time favorite living artist, Hal Haloun, to plan a visit to his studio by yours truly.  I've gushed about Hal before.  His paintings are gorgeous, rich, textural, beautifully executed.  I've stood before his paintings at Kiechel Gallery in Lincoln, Ne. with my nose nearly touching the paint layer, trying to divine his methods.  And now, thanks to my tricky, sneaky very nearly wicked husband, I get to spend a few hours with him.  W o w.

An artist, especially this artist, appreciates all the support one can muster.  I've got it. 
So while the Mother's Day gift that I received from HH is incredibly fabulous and amazingly wonderful, it's the kindness and support I get from him in reaching my artistic goals that is the truest gift of all.  And I get it every day.
Didn't I tell you you were gonna wish you were me?
