Today in Wisconsin it is bitter cold.
The sun is shining bright,
deceptively convincing us of another day.
It is extraordinarily beautiful.
With the cold comes a quiet,
a beautiful quiet.
The temptation to go out is minimal,
so we view the quiet beauty from the safety of our windows.
I am content, painting indoors while the lightness shines in.
I am painting with such contentment and color.
2016 has already been a better year than most.
How do I know?
My painting is telling me so.
It is bright, rich and happy.
Which is what we all should be this new year.
Bright, rich (in friends and love) and happy.
Happy New Year All!
