On the trail -- Sunday scene on the holiday

The word "trail" has been on my mind lately -- maybe
because I've been thinking about the environment so
much, and thinking of the trail we leave behind us ecologically.
We are trying very hard to lessen our impact on the
planet.

But then I thought artistically we leave a trail too.  This in
a different form -- and here on my blog you can track
that trail, and of course see that in recent weeks pansies
have been one of my obsessions.  That's a trail I can be happy 
about.  I finished another painting of the morning pansies I drew
the other day.  

The pansies depicted here are sitting with me now, not quite 
as perky as they were the other morning, and insisting that 
it is now time for bed.

So goodnight my friends.  What kind of a trail are you
leaving behind you these days?

Have a wonderful Victoria Day!

Thank you so much Laurie. It would be lovely wouldn't it. I'm glad you like
the pansies.
