Hello SEASONS bloggers,
Wasn’t it fun to have an anniversary? Enjoyed the variety of your blog posts, and the care you take to make it a great post!
I enjoyed reading them so much, and getting to know parts of the world and areas and countries where I haven’t been yet, such as Germany, Poland, Hungary, India, New Zealand, Australia, but also several states, like Wisconsin, Virginia, etc. Hope you visit some other parts of the world too:):)

Took this impromptu pic with the Ipad, but put it in photoshop for some editions – diffused gloss, glass, reduced much of the contrast.
One of those weird days! Last two weeks I thought spring was coming with 50 degree F weather. Even though rainy, flower bulbs started peeking their heads above the ground… but on Thursday we went in one day from 50 to 25 degrees F!
Meaning from sun to cloudy, trickles of rain. Suddenly hail. After half hour or so, wet snow? Around 4:30 in the afternoon, more … and it kept coming … coming …next still lays on the deck!
California was for many years in a drought, borrowing water from other states. Now the drought is over, there have been several floods where hundreds of people had to be evacuated. ( the Southern part, and close to San Francisco).
Since hubby finished one cabinet for my paintings, I have been transporting my paintings from the house into the studio, and saw all these unfinished ones …
This view is one from Utah, Bryce Canon. Started on a plein air of the right side (you see above). Even though the sun was shining most of the time, close to 9000 feet it was very windy and chilly. After a few times when the canvas almost blew out of my hand, and the oil paint drying too fast, I stopped.

Impossible to capture the whole view on such a small canvas, so I left off some areas. My first strong impression was it looked like “the kingdoms on earth,” so these parts I featured.
The photo shows the trees are further out, but I shortened the distance to frame this snapshot of our vacation/holiday:)
The month of February has been filled with several unfinished paintings like these, and my living room smells like paint:)
Taken a week ago. Hope it will look like this again this coming week!
