My hands are finally warm!!!

Florida is so lovely! It's not as warm as usual here, but they tell me tomorrow the temps will be back to normal (high 70's). Wehoo!

It's an understatement that most of my money is spent on art supplies. I had one small suitcase and my laptops. The rest of the car & trunk were packed to the gills with art supplies. It was really more than I would normally need, but I have a still life painting class I'm taking next semester and have no idea what I'll I brought it all!!! Plus, I'm scheduled to teach some painting classes while I'm here. So you can imagine the supplies I needed for that as well. Packing the car was like putting together a complicated puzzle, but my guy did it! It is clear to me now why my wardrobe is lacking....I spend most of my money on oil paint, easels, paper, canvas, charcoal.....oh and the books/'s terrible!!! (And typical for me.) It just feels like home if I have my paints & brushes with me.

  1. Votre ciel est paisible et l'ensemble de cette peinture prend bien la lumière.
    Bises et réjouissez-vous des bonnes températures à venir... En France nous avons un hiver particulièrement rude.

  2. The creative colors you brought to the foreground make it sing.

  3. Thank you both for your comments! I'm sorry to hear the winter is pretty harsh in France this year. When I'm here in Florida, it's easy to forget even how cold my home state is. Susan, thanks for your kind words also. This painting just feels warm and happy to me.

  4. Love the composition, colors and the warmth this painting!
    Hope you enjoy the weather in Florida. We should have a warming trend for the next few days!
    Happy New Year!
