Green isnot usually one of my favorite colors, but, of late, it is one that I seem drawn to. The new small works of leaves, rocks and water intrigue...

Clouds Snag the Trees
December 28, 2015
Greycloudsfloatabove the trees and here and there cracks let blue sky show through. The patter of raindrops fills the house as music fights back with songs of cheer. Mother watches the world from her chair and drinks coffee in her daily ritual. There are fewer boxes to empty and the house seems more like home each day. Bright lights still shine forth into the room as the celebration of Christmas is still with us. The fireplace is putting out warmth and now and again Mother faces the fire and warms her hands in the glow. The house is warm and she likes the extra heat. She had a night of frequent wake ups but shows no effects of it. I, on the other hand, am tired but will live. Have been developing the list of things to do. Still places to change address and put things in order. One we have to do in person. Makes you wonder why but the government likes it games and so we play.
The memories of the joyful Christmas still flood the mind. Even though Mother cannot remember, she did have a good time. The rides were extra long as we visited friends and had a wonderful time visiting and eating. The music at church made her happy and she sang along on songs. Her music memory seems strong and she like for us to sing when we are driving places.
The painting area is down to just moving some things around and, by next week, I should be back to painting. I am looking forward to that. I have missed seeing thoughts come to life in paint. I will start by finishing up some fish for the museum and galleries. I have work that needs to be photographed for up coming shows. Then, the new work should begin. I will start some new figure works with the idea of navigation and mapping a future. I have some new tree paintings with fog and lights. I may do some shaped works as well. I have always enjoyed the contours of images not bound by strait lines.
Mother is starting to get restless so we shall be off for a ride to see what is happening.
Hope you will have days filled with rest after the busyness of Christmas and before the celebrations of the New Year.
Trust you will find the new year brings what you are looking for and when you find it, it will be what you truly want. Don’t forget to include others in your life and heart. Keep warm and well.
