When I don't paint I write.  Both the art and the prose are related. I have a lot of first drafts to review and re-write. The weather hasn't been cooperating, there an annoying chill in the air and I can[t paint with cold hands.  What I like about the studio of being close to nature and my trees.

The when the wind blows it feels like the trees are clapping. I take cues from it.

Today I had to come inside because of the chill in the air.
