Painting a very conventional picture

Yes, I did this one, WIP, a landscape where J and i like to take walks. The bristles of my brush yearn to wallow in vibrant colours. But my p-i-l don't have a sense for abstract art. And they won't see this before Xmas, they don't have internet access.
On the shelf beside the clock: Yes, it's my husband making a funny face.
No sign of daylight today, even at noon. It is raining unceasingly, and the creek is well-filled.
Not a sign of snow either, and I'm not eager to have any. My dh has to drive to work every day, and he is not really happy if he has to drive on icy streets.

You are so talented! It's lovely and vibrant, and is surely cheerful to look at on what sounds like a dreary day.

How did you end up with so much talent???? Lucky you.

I really like this painting and I'm sure your P-I-L will love it.

The weather you describe sounds like what we had here earlier this week when I didn't even leave the house to go to the mailbox.

They are going to love the painting! It's so joyous and color-filled. Your walking place looks a lot like some places we go.

But right now it's cold and gray outside, making me want to snuggle up to the gas logs all day! Or maybe all weekend.

Stay warm!

Eva, I have had a lot of fun looking through your blogs. This is a lovely painting you have started. I also checked the link entitled "drawings"..are those all your drawings? They are exquisite! I especially loved the drawings with the calligraphy that wound around the images. All the drawings, every one..was so good. You have many talents. I also saw your "petticoat" dress from your Dad's trip to the US--I had the same exact dress. I am not kidding!
