Walking on the Sun

 Today was a good day.  Yesterday, not so much.  So when I woke up this morning, shook the tweedy birds out of my head and realized it was my day off, I was a happy girl.  It was a beautiful, sunny day to boot, so I got a few practical things done and some other fun things, including a long walk,  then devoted myself to playing in my paints which ultimately produced this little, loose landscape.  It's a departure from the portraits which I really love doing, but I have to say - this was lots of fun.  I painted three of these little guys and although the other two will never make it to the blog, I enjoyed doing each one.  It sort of felt like my brain was doing the little expressive dance Snoopy did when Schroeder played his piano.  Yesterday my brain was Munch's, "The Scream".  I needed today.


  1. It always surprises me how painting can return my soul, head, brain, back to "normal" when something is going on! It is a gift!
    I like your landscape. Very peaceful! :-)

  2. I am glad you had a good day today...we all need paint therapy from time to time. I love the depth you were able to get in this piece...very nice!

  3. This is beautiful. I hope you do some more of these loose landscapes!
