March Madness

Here's an iPad drawing of a scene on the 401
on the way to Windsor from Toronto.  I snapped
a shot on our last trip to see Sam in the play
Emma, based on Jane Austen's novel.

March started out with dinner with two very funny
 friends who get along famously.  So much fun.
 So many laughs.  It feels like March.  The winter is
almost gone -- so there's so much to do to
get ready for spring events.  Yikes.  Got
to go and sleep and then work, work, work.
But I can feel that spring madness coming on.
Yay!  I love that feeling.

Have a-getting-into-spring-madness day.

I've so enjoyed your recent posts! These drawings on your iPad and your work and words are full of your enthusiasm, artfulness and skill. I read your heart in these posts too.

I hope you are taking good care of yourself and enjoying every moment you have to paint.

Warm hugs from here!

Thank you Melinda. You are sweet. Yes I do feel moved by the scenery on the drive down to Windsor when we visit our son. I will miss that drive when he graduates. And it's always great to have him home.

I am trying hard to take care of myself, and paint. I hope you are doing the same. Your work lures me to your landscape.
