Pushing the positive

I seem to be on a story kick at my art
group -- which is fun.  I pictured the model
tonight in my kitchen, and the kitchen
at the edge of a lake.  I admit I am hankering
for Nova Scotia and the ocean.  And my inner
child is missing those summers at the lake.
Yep.  I don't have spring fever (God knows
it was bad enough being sick for two months
in the spring), but I do have summer fever.

Summer always seems to be a busy time for
work and creativity -- but part of my brain yearns
for time by water.  That's the upper left side of
the painting (which according to a talk I listened
to yesterday is the wealth and abundance part of
the work) so I say bring it on! True I already feel like I
live in abundance -- and a lot of that is because
I get to talk to you, and see your wonderful
art.

Thanks to Christina -- our wonderful model this week.

Have a dreaming-of-life-by-the-lake day

Hi Sally,

Thank you so much. It's a frisky day here today -- very cool spring. I actually love this weather. And I am so ready for being near the water!
