Tonight we lost power for awhile, and it's
messing up my posts. Sorry for that. Here's
a little painting I started a couple of years
ago. It's amazing how much an artist's
approach can change in that short time.
For that whole time I've looked at this
painting, and looked at it, and not even been
sure what I was seeing, although it's loosely
based on the view out my back window in winter.
So a few days ago I picked up the canvas again.
We had snow on the ground and the rooftops.
I snapped some pictures on my phone and
went back to work. There's still more to do,
but the wind keeps cutting the power out,
so more tomorrow.
Have a using-your-power-wisely day.
Beautiful! It is so lovely to think of you looking at that scene from your window, and then developing this painting from it. There is beauty and inspiration all around us, if only we take the time to be inspired!
Than you Aclem,
That is true.
