there's a few new original paintings in the shop today. it feels nice to be in the studio after a busy couple of days visiting, traveling and eating with friends and family. the bird feeders are freshly filled and i can hear the sounds of all our feathered neighbors as i work. it's a fitting soundtrack to my attempt to wind down. with only a trip to the post office to ship some sold paintings left on the errand list today, i can look forward to a quiet night of relaxing at home!
