5 x 5 inches, Oil on Board
First, let me say how sorry I am for my fellow New Yorkers downstate who got slammed by Sandy. Next, my heart turns to those others living in the states on the Eastern Seaboard who also got slammed.
I wasn't sure what to expect where I live, because of the wide swath of this storm, so I went out yesterday shopping for things like lots of bottled water, batteries, even two new flashlights.
My biggest worry was the wind and the 4 acres of trees that live here with me. Some pretty close to the house. I could just see in my mind one of those trees falling on the house. But the Lord was good to our trees, they endured and we in this house did well.
All night long we had wind and even now as I write this, I can hear wind. My little feeding station is being temporally ignored by my feathered babies. They must be taking cover still. This piece is painted from a photo a took last week. I scraped off the first attempt. I'm pleased with this painting.
Right now, it's hard to believe the sun will shine again, but it's due for the weekend. In the meantime, I'm still honkering down. I have my studio for solace and plan on painting all day today!
