The plein air piece I started last week while vacationing along the Oregon coast has been burning a hole in my suitcase. As soon as I arrived home it was the first thing unpacked. Come to think of it, the only thing unpacked for an entire day. I propped it up on my studio and went to work. It only took a couple of hours to put the finishing touches on this. But I still feel guilty about the laundry that needs to be done, the groceries that need to be bought and the mail that needs my attention. Well, sort of guilty.

    This is beautiful. Don’t you love looking at a just finished painting when you are happy with it? I would be ecstatic over this one. My experience tells me the laundry won’t go anywhere:) Thank you for the smiling comment on my blog. Have a good day.

    Wow Marianne, it’s a beauty!
    Don’t feel the least bit guilty about those other, less important, things. You knew what to do.
