Still Making Art

Life Gets Better as I Get Older

Day 16 – Slow Progress


You can see how slow a painter I am. Here it is a week later and this is how little I have managed to do. I don’t paint hours at a stretch. I have to get up and stretch and even go out for a bit of gardening every 20 minutes or so which accounts, I suppose, for the slow-going. But I’m comfortable with how it’s coming along and still love the magic of it all.

I am a woman living in the woods with animals and nature all around me. I am a painter and a photographer. I left the corporate world fifteen years ago to live in the quiet of the New Hampshire Monadnock woods. I have not had a moment of regret. It is a simple, serene, close to the earth, life I live. I am very fortunate and grateful for what I have.

  1. It’s looking very good! Can’t wait to see it finished.

    • Thank you! I often wonder if what I like appeals to others. I just paint what I like and hope for the best. I know that if i just get the colors and tone right, it should come out okay. (But…we’ll see.)
