The sixth thing I learned in 2022 -- art is best with people

 I went to my Art Group tonight.  I wore a mask and I don't think I
stayed an hour.  My husband drops me off, and when I called to ask
when he was coming back he was waiting in the parking lot.  So
I'd like to do a bit more on the painting before I show it to you.

The model was wonderful, and I felt the joy of painting loosely 
right away. And to see other artists painting around you is inspiring
and energizing. I haven't been to my art group for a couple of
months, and I really missed everyone.

The painting tonight was inspired by a walk through the loop in our
local park.  The front of the house is a faux castle look very big in
some neighbourhoods, but the back is a pretty, accessible brick.
Now a huge fence blocks this view.  But I loved looking at
the house when we would walk by with the dog.

Have a loving your life day.
