Celebrating the month of Good Cheer

I like the idea of setting up expectations for the month of
May to be a Month of Good Cheer. And in that spirit I went for a
walk with a friend, and her sweet dog in the May wind, organized
notes for my class, worked on this painting, and took reference photos
for a larger work. In general I made the decision to be happy.

It's a bit like deciding on a direction you want to go with a
painting.  The happy decision to paint something you love
is always a good beginning.  And here we are -- May first.
In Canada the start of spring really beginning.

Wishing you a glorious month of over the top good cheer.
