Nasturtium time, and one tired artist

Night Nasturtiums

Despite my fatigue I will probably go out in the garden 
tonight and pick some nasturtiums.  They are suddenly
stepping out and asking for attention.  And they are
so beautiful.  

The power went out for a few minutes today, which
seemed like a fitting metaphor for how I was feeling. But
when it came back on I went back to painting, and felt
renewed.  Plus the painting is slowly coming together. So
I can probably show it to you in a few days.

Here's a nasturtium painting that captures the joy I
feel seeing them.  And you have to pick them, so they'll
produce more.  A true gift.  Thank you magical flowers.

Have a loving your life day.
