Solitary Tree - Lin Frye

Ever find yourself unable to paint anything else but what is right before you? The weather apparently has gotten into my bones and eyes this weekend, and rain, cold, and fog seem to flow from my paintbrush despite other attempts. This started out as a landscape in fog, our weather this morning, and before long turned into rain ...the weather of the day. Ah well ... I may have to find a way to spend some time at a florist so I can find pink and green again on my pallet! LOL

This 'painting that comes from somewhere else' is new to me -- though I've often experienced it when I write ... very interesting ...

Things are progressing for Mike and he sounded better yesterday, though still uncomfortable. C's jam went well, and he was surprised at the crowd that showed up -- some of his friends he hadn't seen for a while due to their other obligations ... what a merry sound they made ... the house was dancing!

I'm off to a two-day conference today in preparation of a grant we hope to write's icy and very foggy outside so it'll be a slow go ....

Stay well!

  1. A beautiful rainy depiction Lin. We're having an extremely rainy summer, lovely, but it goes hand-in-hand with everything being extremely green as well!

  2. Great capture, Lin. It is funny how our deep inner feelings can take over our hands as we paint or write.
