In a state of wonder

It is a bit wintry today, though much warmer.  Quite a
wonderful day despite the grey skies, and for me in
addition to going to the market and seeing our friends
there, there was this.

I worked on this painting of clouds in Nova Scotia near
where we stay in Pugwash.  And I know that looking at
this scene I would be in a state of wonder, and have
to stop the car, get out and stare.  Which is what we artists are
here for -- to drink in what we see, interpret it in our
own way, and give it back to you.  So I hope you enjoy
it, and I also hope you get to travel to Nova Scotia in
the summer yourself, and delight in all that it has to
offer.  I miss it.

Have a travelling in your mind day.
