Several things layered together for me as I painted this one. Sometimes we have to look past certain things to see the beauty. Sometimes we just have to go do “that thing” even though all the “other things” aren’t done yet. There is peace and there is beauty all around us, take a moment to pause and soak it in. This season is fleeting… This was all created outside in the corner of the deck while the dogs played and napped. (well, except for the inks, those were done just outside the yard or the dogs would have had a hay day playing with a canvas on the ground 🤣) It was so nice to get lost in the painting while being serenaded by the birds and warmed by the sun!
