Today was just one of those lazy days when nothing seems more enticing than just lounging on that comfy couch with a book. Yup taking a break from the writing. But on another thought this could also be the right moment to try something different. Any place I can put my gear is my workshop. Living room, dining room, bedroom, or garage. Haven't tried the last two though. Might try the garage and enjoy an occasional breath of fresh air at the same time. Sounds like a good idea, right?

And so I painted.... the result of which you may see above.

The inspiration for this piece was provided by several landscape photos of Stephen Baird in his blog 'Nikon Sniper'.

Hope you're all having a lovely and blessed day.

    wonderful skill you have. it's amazing the mental rest you can get doing art. for me that can happen everytime i pick up the camera.
    God bless you in everything you do.
