My family and I found a little dirt road we had never before explored, and lo and behold, it had a fantastic view of this gorgeous hidden swamp. So I went back on a hot summer day, parked myself at the edge of someone’s field, and had a lovely day of painting. This landscape will be at the Croton Artisans’ Holiday Show this weekend, where I’ll also be painting half-hour portraits. Come by to say hello, see some beautiful arts and crafts, and if your timing is right, snag some of Yoshimi’s amazing sushi.

It is hot today. I am working on a commission (not the one pictured), but it is hot, and I am procrastinating. I love the cute face I’m painting, but nevertheless, all of the following have seemed important enough to interrupt painting for:
1. Check to make sure the laundry hanging out in the sun is actually drying. (It is.)
2. Play with the cat.
4. Water the only houseplant left standing, as I am usually not that attentive a waterer.
5. Go searching for the paintbrush that I left somewhere on one of my previous peregrinations.6. I think it’s time for a snack.
