(Available)I love this painting for the exuberance that jumps
out of the picture. What is strange is that when I
painted it I wasn't thinking about climate change
and the effect of oil on our climate. I am now
every time I fill my car.
I love travelling, and driving, and watching
people wherever I am -- that was what this was about.
On top of that when I'm in the Maritimes everything
looks good -- brilliant, beautiful. Maybe it's the air,
which is still vital and clean in Nova Scotia. Maybe it's
the people. Almost all friendly and kind -- top of my
list for wonderful. Maybe it's me. I change -- my
eyes are wide, wide open.
Whatever it is, the journey of 2,000 kilometres (1,000 miles)
starts with packing the car. So it's time for bed, so that
can be done tomorrow with a bit more ease. The woman
in my painting looks like she has it all together, and I
liked that about her.
Have a getting it all together day.
