It's that time of year

Everybody I know is hurrying and scurrying about to accomplish this and that.  I'm one of them. Not much is being accomplished in the studio over the last few weeks.  I walk through it on the way to my husband's workshop where things are happening. We are in the middle of renovating our family room. Yes, we choose odd times to be productive .  Now that the room is almost finished (waiting for Don to make a new table) I've been thinking about creating a new piece of art for the room.  This morning while I had my coffee I had an inkling of what the work will be.  My inspiration is a series of bare branches on the tree outside the window which will hopefully lead to an abstracted image.

 This will be the second time I used the view outside a window to inspire a work that hangs inside. This is my other one that hangs in my summer house.  It is the bay outside my window there painted from memory.It's one of my few landscaped and even fewer ones that show a vista rather than a close up examination. I've captured the feeling of serenity that Duntara gives me.

Lovely!! I know what you mean about suiting the art to the surroundings. My living room in Maine has a 30' tall wall with lots of glass on it. For me, any art hanging in that room must bring the outdoors in. Have fun with your redo!

I can relate to the "scurrying about". I'm totally with you on that right now. It definitely slows production, but it sounds like your mind is still generating ideas for when you settle back into your art routine. I look forward to seeing what your "inkling" manifests...

Looking at your painting I feel the serenity too.
