Last year I broke my wrist -- and that affected so manyparts of my life. This year I vowed to take back my blog,
and beat my last year's record. Meaningless to everyone
else, but meaningful to me because of living through a
year of not being able to do all of the things I enjoy.
Another painting of pansies has decided to show up
for the celebrations of making it one blog past my last
year's record. Now I can relax, quit blogging, have a nap.
No -- I'm kidding, but I also know that however many times
I blog for the rest of the year, I am besting my last year's record.
This little glass of pansies was sitting on my bedside table
begging to be drawn when I woke up this morning.
Later today I brought the pansies to the studio and
finished this painting. It is the long weekend
here, and everybody's psyched to have a holiday
free from winter's grip. The pansies cheer for that
Have an enjoying your holiday day.
