This is a little study from a photo I took in Palm Desert. This was one of those paintings that I labored over.
I feel real bad about the disasters in Japan. Years ago I was a summer exchange student there. Not in the areas that are talked about in the news, but sometimes I wonder if the hosting families I stayed with have relatives there.
The weather here has been rainy, gloomy and windy and cold. A jackhammer has been hammering away across the street for 3 full days now. I try to be creative with all of this - but it is harder, I admit it.
The good news is that I'm done preparing taxes for our CPA! One big cloud over my head is gone!!!!!
