Silent Evening

Silent Evening
Oil on Canvas

Silent Evening is a painting I did in early February.  There is so much to catch up with for me.  My house is still in a state of partial disarray due to the flood we had last December.  Since then we have had numerous workmen in the house, from jack hammers to painters.  Needless to say, there has been lots of dust too!

Our house is slowly getting back to normal.  As a matter of fact, it will probably be in a much better state when everything is finally done, since the basement will now be a lovely family room with new carpeting.  Until then, my art helps me feel "sane".  While I'm painting, all is right with the world.

What a nice surprise to see you! I'm sure life is CRAZY with all that work going on! But you are right, when the dust finally settles and life gets back to normal, it will be worth it and even better than before! Sounds like you'll be gaining some lovely living space!

Hi Maggie, Yes, I've been absent for a while. Thank you for your kind comment!

Hi Granny from Florida, Thank you for your touching comment of how my painting reminded me of your Granny's painting. You touched my heart too!

Hi Kathleen, We've been out of touch too long. Now I need to visit you to see what you've been up to.

Hi Betsy, Oh, how I wish it were all done. Thank you for your daily blog postings. I look forward to each and every one!

I hope you are all recovered from your flood. I'm glad you are still painting your wonderful glowing tonalism paintings. I think of you when the golden sun shines through the trees. I am trying to revisit my blog, perhaps start an actual website. I've had a very busy year, but miss bloggyland and everyone's support and feedback.

It's been a challenging year for both of us it seems. Sometimes life just gets in the way of posting, but we'll get there again. Looking forward to reading your posts!
