A do nothing high

At least that's what I thought when I woke up today -- that
I would do nothing. But in fact some stuff got done.  I cleaned
up for the workers coming to work on the house.  I read my
delightful novel.  I went walking with a friend, and we agreed
on dry sidewalks, so I left my icers (the things you strap on
your regular winter boots that make it safe to walk on ice) behind.
This was a dicey decision because I slipped and fell on
ice walking home from the store last night.

And my mind was swimming with ideas.  I did a couple
of small portrait drawings, thought about a series, and 
made this painting for tonight's blog.

Originally I planned to make it abstract, and it is,  But
clouds desperately wanted into the picture.  And as I love
clouds so much, I acquiesced. 

I hope you had a good Monday, and have happy plans for
the week.

Have a loving your life day.

This painting reminds me of a beautiful spring day with clear crisp colours❣️❣️❣️ ideas are thick and fast most mornings, then life gets in the at and I lose so many or cannot make a decision on which to do!
