Sometimes a painting holds special, personal meaning for the artist. This is one. I won't pretend the artwork is anything special, in fact a summer drizzle came along and appeared to add snowflakes to my stormy summer sky. No matter. It captures a moment in time for me.
When I started it was sunny. I spread my painting stuff out on the hood of the car. What caught my eye was a turkey vulture soaring with a stormy sky moving in from the west. Dale and I were out savoring a day out together, celebrating our 50th anniversary. Our official celebration was last night, but today, June 27, is the actual date of our marriage.
Fortunately the drizzle was brief. I could have sought shelter in the car, but it was so delicious standing outside, I chose to stay there. The sun soon came back to help dry my paper.
I feel very fortunate that after fifty years we are still exploring nature together and appreciating each other's company.
