Feeling like bed time

People who know me would be shocked that I'm thinking about
bedtime before 10 o'clock.  Of course it won't happen that early,
but I've been working on a painting I am enjoying, and it's not
ready for viewing.  And we had a wonderful walk in our
favourite park today.  And I'm tired.

We were feeding the ducks, and had almost run out of
bread (the top ornithologist at Oxford University supports feeding
water birds bread -- especially the good bread we use.)
Just as we planned to move on about 20 geese landed on the
water in front of us.  I teased Steven that they were yelling,
"Steve's here!" 

This is a portrait from an art group session 13 years ago.
I love it. and this is what I said about it when I posted it.
"Here's a rapid sketch I did of an elegant British
lady who posed for us one night at our class.
She was an artist's mother, visiting from
England, and a great model. She sat in this very
proper and straight posture, dressed in lush colours.
I like the agitation in my painting. I think I was
just excited by her gutsiness."

Have a loving your life day.
