I’ve been a bit absent on here over the last several weeks. I like to keep things on here ‘happy and simple’, which is a bit of a struggle at the moment. It’s just one of those months – a zillion things to get done around the house, and unfortunately, a great deal of time spent caring for my nearly 14-yr-old pup with several health challenges, one of which is a deteriorating spine. Yet, my chaos is nothing compared to the struggles facing so many after this week’s tragedy in Boston. My thoughts are with all those whose lives changed on Monday and all those who may be struggling to comprehend.
…Heading back to simplicity for a moment – here’s a photo update of a painting I was asked to do and am slooowly completing.
One of my favorite things about painting is that it requires full focus, allowing everything else to temporarily fade.

Note that I still need to add trees to the barren horizon line, and perhaps a pheasant feather on the ground near the dog. The grass has some issues since I typically paint from photos and didn’t have one for this. Suggestions (from anyone!) would be wonderful and appreciated!! Portions that look strange or ways to improve it?
When time allows, I’ll be back with the gardening post I promised awhile ago, a new recipe and a DIY desk I built a few weeks ago!
