Early Spring in Paradise

Life is full of contrasts.  I have discovered that when there is way too much sadness in my life a few hours in the sun with a paint brush in my hand can be absolute bliss.

Debbie and I both lost family members yesterday.  She headed out of town early this morning to be with her family and I headed to Coote's Paradise with my paints.

I am excited about this.  It isn't perfect but no painting ever is.

Spring is in the Air

It was a fantastic day to paint.   There were just enough clouds to make the sky interesting but not enough to block out the very warm sun.   It was about -2 C but with the sun and very little wind it was quite comfortable.  We were on Paddy Green Road just outside Dundas.

I am pleased with this.  I think that I caught the lazy early spring feeling.  Lots of snow but with an obvious warmth.
