Today's Everglades painting reminds me why I love what I do. The Everglades is a magical and special place, and I'm very grateful to be painting its beauty on a daily basis. Looking at this painting is calming, and the gentle trickle of the softly gurgling water can lower the blood pressure! This one was sold before it left the easel, and will go to the home of a dear collector as soon as I can get it framed.
It has been an incredibly crazy week. I was followed around by a little black rain cloud, which continued to rain down additional stormy challenges on a daily basis. Finally it got so bad it became humorous, which helped to put everything into perspective. The least of it was eight days without a computer. The fate of much of my data is still unknown, and everything is newly different. Moan.
