The landscape I love

Yesterday I felt so lucky.  I got to talk to an artist friend in Texas.
It was her birthday, and I sang Happy Birthday to her.  Then last
night an artist friend in The Netherlands was writing messages back
and forth to me, and I loved hearing about the fact that she was starting
her day ferociously early, just as I was getting ready for bed.

We drove out to one of our favourite parks by the lake and 
took a walk, then Steven drove as far west as he could so
I could see a spectacular sunset.  It was amazing. These 
moments in life are what we artists live on -- drinking in
the visual like it was an elixir, because it is for us.

This landscape was inspired by my day, and by a sweet
thing someone said on TV.  Every day is the perfect day, and
you are exactly where you are meant to be! I like it.

Have a loving your life day.
