Sunny Rain

Yesterday it poured and then quite suddenly stopped. And then poured again, sideways.
Today it was gorgeous. I was thrilled to see the sun all day.

I haven't been in the mood to paint lately. Perhaps it's the light, or lack of it. Encaustic paint requires a lot of ventilation and I obtain that through opening a window and adjacent door in my studio. Perhaps I've been avoiding the chill.

I'm not sure if I'll be able to maintain my fervor of 2007 but I'm not going away either. Trish and I just returned from a family visit to Long Island. It was so good to be back in the studio painting today.

Look what the bird feeder brought...

We first saw the doves the Sunday after we were married. Doves and a humming bird. Jane said it was good luck since doves mate for life. I took this from my kitchen window a few weeks back. It was sunny for a little while on Friday, but mostly we've been pretty soggy here in the Bay Area.
