Progress is happening

Everyone I know is talking about the environment,
discussing solutions, sending suggestions about how
to behave, what to do, what not to do, and how to
vote.  In Canada our federal (national) elections are this
month and the environment is front and center.  

I am working (very slowly) on a painting for the Four
Seasons show at the Heliconian Club  next month, which 
is focused on the climate change crisis we're living through. 
It's one of those paintings that takes a long time, but gets richer,
and more vibrant the more I work on it.  And today it is
starting to become clear to me where I am going -- step,
by step -- to get to the big picture. (Well 30 x 30 inches -- so
not small).

Have a taking care of the planet day.

Hi Candy,

Thank you so much. Sometimes it's just a question of standing back, digging in, then standing back again.
Over and over. Ultimately that almost always works out.

XOXOXOXOXO Barbara Have a wonderful evening too!
