Many of you around the country have had a cold, wintry week, with more to come. Blowing winds, cold, slush, freezing rain and power outages are all the news. Perhaps this little mini-painting will brighten your day! Balmy winds, breezy palms, and a view of the gulf might lift your sprits. Today, before I start painting, we'll take a trip to the Marco Island farmer's market for the wonderful fresh vegetables and flowers. It's great to have it back after summer lull. The colors are so pleasing, everyone is there, and in just a short time you can have a bag filled with good healthy food for the coming week! We'll have six more months of beautiful weather before the summer rains come again.
