A Reminder of Spring
I'm afraid I've let slip a promise to post a painting every week - an exercise to keep me practicing. I have been painting a lot this winter however, and am just now finishing paintings for my 2014 Peaceful Places calendar.
In the meantime, I feel like the spring has also slipped away from me or has the sun slipped by spring here in Maine?
I painted this scene to remind me that while I'm stuck inside wallowing in a cocktail of self pity and Vitamin D, I can make up a world that suits me - one that is sunny, nourishing, peaceful and restful. It helps. I can feel my brain again.
