As I drove to work early yesterday morning, I was struck by the blue cast of the landscape - from the sky to the fields to the trees themselves, everything seemed to be a shade and tone of blue. I tried to memorize what I was seeing during the two hour drive ..
The 'blue' stuck with me... and after working another two hour trip home and my visit with Mike, I tried to recall that 'blue' morning before the sun came up....
In my drive, there was no snow ... just wet fields and hazy blue trees ... but the lateness of the hour and my own fatigue somehow produced snow with the blue .. so I left the painting .. partly from memory, partly from imagination.
Mike's recovery is going well. I was able to get to the hospital early enough to help him take his first walk and watch him eat his first bowl of soup ... so again, thank you for your continued prayers and good wishes.
I've a few things to get done before returning to the hospital ...so I'm off to get an early start on another too-busy day ...
