What a rough winter remembering warm sunny days and flowers. If anything my appreciation will increase this summer.
It's a busy time lining up adventures for summer and working on other paintings.
Hopefully my artist residency application to the Porcupine Mountains in the Upper Peninsula for two weeks of painting will come to fruition or my stay as a lighthouse keeper in Tawas will happen. Actually I want to do both.
In my studio is a 24 x 48 inch painting of trees and a still life 20 x 24 that have been getting my attention lately so you aren't seeing as many daily paintings this month.

Painted this for the Stroke Challenge on Daily Paintworks. Having a domestic dilemma upon my return from Tennessee was very distracting so decided that this challenge would be great to refocus. This was an exercise to use one stroke for each color and then mix a new color, caught myself a couple of times being a bad girl, lucky you could go over to make corrections.

This painting was in progress for a week to much distraction.
We had a major dilemma our well quit working. No water for 10 days. We weren't the only one's these cold temperatures have caused many problems with wells in the area. It took heavy duty snow removal equipment to access the ground to work. We have 3 feet of snow in our yard this reminds me of winters from my childhood.
