End of a perfect day (work in progress)

Barbara Muir © 2020The painting I'm showing you tonight is a work in progress.
I know some painters can paint really quickly on a small
work. I am not that artist. This is more of the clouds I love, at the
end of a summer's day. I love summer, but I'm really enjoying
this winter so far.
I have had a good February. Lots of walks with a dear
friend and her very obedient dog. Great conversations with
artists all over the world. Paintings in two shows in New York
City. Plus a fun trip to Ottawa, Canada with my darling to see
family and friends.
As a Valentine's Day fan, I feel happy when the house is
decorated with sweet red hearts for the day and the month.
The look of winter on a sunny day is every bit as
beautiful as summer in the same light -- it's just not as warm.
(the operant word is layers -- big time.) In summer you
see many more colours. I know it's beautiful, but winter
gets me too.
Sigh. Deep breath, welcome March in a few days --
and of course the excitement of spring coming. I know
I'll love it.
Have a loving where you are day.
