Despite all my good intentions, life got in the way. Illness, floods, travel and family committments all became really good excuses not to devote a few minutes a day to the thing I claim to be passionate about. And now it's like starting all over, trying to build that habit.
Look for something tomorrow, I hope. The waters appear to be receding, and soon the dirt will be trucked away to somewhere else. The sun is trying to shine, and I have a brand new paintbox for outdoor landscape painting from life, or "plein air" as it is called.
