Crazy thrill -- selling in New York

I have been teaching tonight, and am inspired by how hard my
students are trying to work learning writing, and presentation
online.  And I'm inspired by the help I'm getting from fellow
teachers, Steven who is my tech help, and everyone who has

Looking back on my artist's life a year ago, I just finished
this painting See What I Mean?  About a couple loving the
park that Steven and I love on the western edge of the city.
Every now and then we drive out there, and go for a walk.
There are very few people in the park, and we all stay far, far away
from each other.

Yesterday it was cold at the lake, and the waves were high,
smashing against rocks along the water's edge, and sending glorious
spray 20 feet into the air.  As we walked along we saw the
male swan sleeping in the pond, and the female still on the nest.
Overhead swallows flew dipping and diving high in the sky.  And
flowering trees along the path were in bloom.  You could not
hear traffic, or the city.  It was magic.

So that is the place I love that inspired the painting. One day when
this is over we might meet you there.

Selling this painting in December in New York City was amazing.
It makes me happy when landscapes move people.  And even
happier when those people buy the painting! (True.)

Have a loving your life day.
