Tomorrow around 9:15am, I turn 48. It's the new 25 . . .
At any rate, I wanted to paint something I enjoy seeing every day: the sun rising. More will enter the painting over the next few hours or days, but for now it's just the orange-y sun in a golden sky. These are colors which make me feel happy right now.
And a Nature Happening of Note: A pair of bluebirds have nested in the east side of our house (in an unfinished portion of siding) where woodpeckers were last year. So. I've got the proverbial Bluebird(s) of Happiness on the sunny side. How great is that?
