It is January and it is cold but above freezing so I'm outside working up a small painting of these pagoda-like gazebos. I am so attracted to their dark mystery. They speak of far off summer weddings and celebrations of course. But I'm attracted to their atmosphere, both welcoming and secretive.

I am finally getting around to posting about this plein air experience I had on the day after Christmas.
There is so much activity leading up to the holiday - things to make for family, friends, and clients. I have always enjoyed the release of obligations once the holiday is over. I woke up that morning to a blanket of fresh snow. When the sun came out I knew what I had to do. It was peaceful painting on this wooded path. The only other person I saw was a woman walking her dog...probably enjoying the same sense of solitude that I was.
I wish everyone peace in the new year!
