This past week I thought a lot about the weather. How, even on the darkest, coldest, ugliest days, we rise. It's easy in the summer, to wake up to a beautiful sunrise and feel the warmth on your shoulders as you start the day. It's a lot harder in the winter. And yet, we rise.
I just finished this painting...it is a biggy...3 feet by 4 feet and I LOVED working on it. The water soluble oils are marvelous, though I am quite a messy mess-maker and the fact that it takes forever for them to dry isn't good for anyone. Coco has a funny orangey-pink patch on her caboose that just won't come out. (I do too, but we'll talk about THAT another day....)
