The landscape that we love to paint is disappearing at a rate I can't even quantify. For that reason, recessions are bittersweet for me: painting sales have slowed... but so have the bulldozers!
Today two of us met with someone who is trying to protect a beautiful, and truly special, piece of property. We hope to work in concert with her organization in a fundraiser to buy the land. Would there were more people with that kind of vision! Wish us well.
Meanwhile, the winter weather continues to plague everyone who is trying to get anything done -- and it lures those of us who want to go outside and paint it!
