Time shift -- shaking it up

Today is the dreaded day our clocks move forward.
I say that because everyone's world rocks around
what time of day it is, and I had coffee late in the
day yesterday. That meant I was up too late.
And add to that another hour so it was even
later --just plain cruel.

On the bright side (and OMG it was a gorgeously
sunny day).  The time changes because we are moving
towards spring.  And that is a delicious idea.
So hurray for spring! Here is a painting I have looked
at for years and wanted to change.

The problem was that I didn't like the colour of the
shadows on the table, and the table itself.  Today
after a scary power outage around dinner time, (yes
just when we were cooking), I knew exactly what to
do.  Miraculous eh?  The lights came on in the house,
and in my brain at the same time.  Another reason
to be happy.

So I love it now, and I hope you like it too!

Have a saving-the -day-and-saving-the-art day!
