Front Porch View II
12" x 9", oil on canvas
My vehicle is receiving what I hope is TLC from the dealer today. Since I live on the edge of a very small town, no car means I am homebound.
Instead of frustrated and trapped, I feel fully liberated!
If I NEEDED to get out, I have a bike and my perfectly able feet could carry me to a small convenience store a few miles away. But I don't need to, so I get to stay here in my studio with my dogs and that is more than enough.
Without the means to perform even my daily visit to the post office, I am free to paint and write all day. I think I hear thunder in the distance-could I be lucky enough to lose power for a short while? Maybe I will turn off the phone too!
What would you do with a gift day like this?
PS - In case you think "stuck at home" means no plein air painting, above is a sketch of from my front porch. I wanted to practice my "skyholes" and leaves in preparation for summer!
