I can't believe I've been so bad about keeping up with this blog. Sometimes other things happen. January turned out to be a very sad month--many deaths--and I just haven't been in the mood to paint or write or do anything but what I had to. The crocus are blooming (sometimes with ice on them) and the daffodils are up so I know spring is on the way. I hope you all saw the lunar eclipse last night. It was incredible from my back porch. It had been cloudy all day so I had little hope for a viewing but it was clear, and very cold and beautiful at 10 p.m. I can surely understand why the ancients would have been worried to see something like that. Even now, knowing what causes it, it's pretty eerie.
Hope you have a good rest-of-the winter and I'll do my best to post some new paintings soon.
