What I'm working on -- a fascinating day

This painting is about the wonder I feel walking around my own neighbourhood.
Clouds certainly do captivate me, and I get to see them perform their
incredibly awe inspiring and beautiful dance when I go and walk my dog
in the local park.

Much as I love traveling, my own neighbourhood means the world
to me, and makes me want to record what I see.  And surprisingly
some of my scenes of this community's spaces has sold to people
in New York City.

It has been a happy, crazily frustrating, and ultimately very satisfactory
day.

Have a loving your neighbourhood day.

Hi Candy,

Today was a very happy day. We had sweet kids at the door for Halloween, and my whole family
came over. It was the best.

Thank you for your sweet messages.

Love your work.

XOXOXOXOXO Barbara
