Only a few more days to go and we are headed for the finish line. Old man winter needs to start packing NOW! Feels a lot like waiting for Christmas. I have heard that Spring is showing it's early delights, peeking out, here and there south of here. I can not see it under the piles of snow. Maybe it is a good day to start spring cleaning, I will not want to do later and miss the warm, sunny days to come... Soon, I hope.
I painted this with the calm that comes from a solitary walk on the beach. Is there a better relaxation technique than the sound of a pounding surf? The water is warm, the breeze is balmy, but strong. Reconnect with your soul. My favorite type of day.
Change is in motion. I can feel it, almost touch it. Never easy, it will not happen by being still. Choices, the small ones we make everyday set the forward motion of our lives. I will make the choices to move life forward. I choose to be happy.
I painted this lonely gala apple as part of the Daily Painters weekly challenge. The challenge was to spend only 10 minutes on each and quit. It turned out to a a great exercise in loose brushstrokes, and a lot of fun.
On another bitter cold morning, wishing I was somewhere warm, balmy. Just want to feel sunlight on face. My son took a photo of this little guy on his balcony while on a work holiday in Hawaii. So colorful I just had to paint him.
