When I looked at the date of my previous post, I couldn't believe it. It has been a little over a month since I've painted or posted anything. Yes, the holidays are one excuse but this year's holidays have been gloriously laid back. Maybe it is that I needed a break for awhile. Whatever the reason, I'm back in the saddle (studio) again. The colors of the paintings are richer. There was a lot of sunlight coming through the window when I took these photos.
