A treat of a day

Ocean thoughts

Happy weekend everybody.  Today was spectacularly beautiful,
and I was so lucky to be working painting, and to get to the lake
at the end of the day where everything was so lush and green, 
and it felt like nature was filled with joy. (Artists eh? Everything
visually beautiful gets us going.)

I worked on a few paintings today, but I'm showing you a simple
sketch, because I love both the colours, and the straight up
happiness with life captured here.  The blue of the ocean is a colour
that made me so happy, I was probably annoyingly upbeat all day.
The news can bring me down. Still I feel fortunate that just looking
at the lake, feeding the geese and ducks, seagulls and red-winged
blackbirds, and the sunset makes me content. 

Have an enjoying the world day.

Hi Evelyn,

Thanks so much. I do have a constant longing for the ocean. And it is beyond
beautiful here now too.
