The more I paint, the more I paint. I’m loving winter. It’s quiet. There is time to think and enjoy the quiet of leafless trees and no yard work to do. The new pup and I can spend lots of time in my studio and we both can walk out into the seemingly lifeless back yard. Before long, there will be all that comes with spring. Meanwhile, here is a new canvas called “leaping dog”. I think it is an expression of joy. The joy is not about anything or anybody….just that feeling that arrives out of nowhere for no particular reason!
