The lane in winter
8 x 10 inches

In some ways it's been a somber day. Friends and
family members having some hard times. But outside
nature was putting on a spectacular show -- first of
all a snowfall that coated everything in that perfect
sugar candy coating of snow -- every branch, every
leaf still trying to grow in the garden. Then the sun
came out and melted most of it. And at the end of
the day wispy clouds against a azure sky. Winter
you sure know how to shake things up.
I looked up a photo I took of a lane near my house
that I love, and decided to do a drawing on my iPad.
The colours are so glorious -- pure pleasure. And
that matters. So here it is. Another little iPad drawing.
I'm heading back down to the studio now to mess
with some paint. My sister-in-law Lina pointed
out that the light's returning to the land. Now
that is joyous news.
Have a rollicking-in-the-light day.
