Today we had "work" at home. The shed door had sunk below the level of the deck with the shifting ground of springtime. My summer tires, for which I have the appointment in this next week to change the winter tires, were in the back of the shed. Bruce figured the door had to be removed and once the door was off, the trash/recycling needed to be dealt with. Then the nest made by rodents! Yikes! needed to be cleaned up. Many tasks, much throw aways, washing and hosing off...then gardening. But the day was lovely and it was only 4 when we put the dinner to bake and I could take off to the studio to paint! Yes!
This painting was begun in 2006, a very fine beginning, which was hard to cover up, but I finally did and feel this painting has much more depth and meaning than the "beginning". 40x30. The painting I worked on today changed from the last photo enough that I can't post it yet. I didn't take the camera today. I have waxed in a silk scarf square into the painting and it is such a revelation to me as I work on it....tomorrow or Tuesday.
Life can be such a treat! I hope life is good for all of you who pass through here...and thanks for coming by.
