My favorite apples

Today is my 399th blog. I'm working on a simple
painting of apples in a bowl using
more or less the one brush method. You put your
brush down for one stroke and lift it up. I like
the painting, but haven't had enough time to finish
it tonight because I've been marking papers all day.

What a gorgeous day it was here -- the sneaky suggestion
of spring, a warmish day, little flowers poking up in
gardens here and there, and people beginning to talk
about summer. In Ontario that can mean you'll
be slammed with a snow storm, or worse an ice
storm as soon as you get comfortable, start
cleaning up the garden, and looking at your spring

Still it's hard not to be in the moment on a sunny
day. These are my favorite apples -- Macintosh apples.
There are a few details to iron out, so I'm just giving
you a glimpse of where it's at right now.

Have an I-know-where-I'm-going day.
