Winter is not my time to paint since it is a little chilly in my studio and I keep the heat only high enough to keep my plants alive. But this winter I've spent several days painting at a friend's house, which has been wonderful and I've enjoyed that time we've had together. Usually she and her husband are away at their condo skiing, but over the years they have spent less and less time there and finally, last year, sold the place. Unfortunately now with the sudden scare of COVID-19 we are not painting together for a few weeks until we see what happens.
But the few times we did meet, I worked on a couple of projects and from one of those meetings, a new idea has sprung up that I'm excited about and will be sharing over the next several months. I'm hoping a friend, who owns a gallery, will want to feature my work in a special show. Which means, cold or not, I've got to get up to my studio to paint. But spring is just a few days away so with longer and warmer days, I'll soon be in my studio.
