The Woods

I'm having flashbacks from last year's daily painting project. I'm now recalling how difficult it can be to name the paintings and how hard it is to get a good photo under less than ideal circumstances. And how leaving the painting to the end of the day means scrambling to get it on the blog so as not to lose face! :)  And this is just day 2!

I will re-post a better image tomorrow.

* update April 26: this is now a more accurate image.

Hi Nicki

It's been a while since my last visit!
I'm sending you my best encouragements for your many projects.
Just like the thematics of your painted exploration, you truly are a "force de la nature"!
I enjoy the small works too, especially this minimalistic one with its warm light. Direct and poetic.
Congrats for being so committed to your essence, it is inspiring.

Hi Pierre,

How nice to have a visit from you! Thank you for your thoughtful wishes for all the things happening right now. I'm taking a lot of deep breaths these days!

I appreciate your generous words in regards to this painting and my other landscape work. Such praise is thrilling when it comes from an artist I admire so much.

All the best to you!
