Wildflower Landscape on Masa
It's early as I write, the dark of night still clinging to the sky, shrouding the woods and the roads here. The promise of rain held in low-hanging clouds darken the outdoors even more. At my desk, the lights blaze warmth, and the coffee begins its work to energize me for another busy day.
The first weeks of school, coupled with heat, weeds, deadlines, unexpected needs, visitors and new-year planning have tired me each night so that painting, my typical relief, has been a bit of a struggle. This painting was finished over the weekend, as the small practice work I did last night will take me longer than it might have if my energy levels were higher. Still, I am always glad to put paint to paper! LOL
My friend has been so very kind this week -- she's been playing comedies each night while I paint and she works on some of her work, and so the house is lifted with our laughter, and the day's fatigue is slowly lifted ..... a gift for sure.
I've an early morning meeting and several others throughout the day ... I'm hoping for that much-needed rain -- our landscapes are so dry ...
Take care today ....!
