Went for a snowshoe this afternoon to get some fresh air and take a few pics…

The view outside my window this morning was one of my favourites…Blue-grey sky, white snow, green trees, and an old fence. I took a few pictures, knowing I’d paint it later, and here it is.

And today’s photo is of tonight’s glorious sunset that completely surprised me. After a mostly overcast day, I resigned myself to the fact I wouldn’t be seeing a sunset tonight. This was a happy surprise!

As much as we need cities and buildings to live and work in, we need nature more.

Two evenings in a row now, I have almost quit the project. Just because I’m tired or not into it. And then I see a painting hanging on the wall and think… You’ve been doing this every day for over a year… Going to quit now???

So tonight, I sighed, sat at the table and stared at a blank canvas for what seemed like a long time, waiting for an idea but nothing came. Then I really thought it was time to call it quits.

Instead, I picked up my phone, opened Pinterest and looked at my painting inspiration board for ideas and I saw it! I knew what I was going to paint.

I love this quote. The first time I read it I thought…YES! Someone else gets it. This is exactly how I feel when I’m in nature, in the forest, hanging with the trees!

This evening’s sunset is photo of the day:
