The dogs burst out of the door and bounded out into the snow. They raced and ran and tackled each other. They rolled in the snow and wriggled on their backs, all four feet in the air. They barked and leapt and played and dug and ran in circles, gleeful, joyful!

And I'd been thinking more snow was a bad thing.

This painting is another step away from the one I made in the midst of a storm earlier in the week. When I stumble into more abstract landscapes, I realize again how much I love them. I'm making my way along the edge of abstraction, and enjoying balancing here.

Oil on canvas, 12x12, $200

Okay...this is my FAVORITE so far of your abstracts young lady. I hope you go bigger soon!

Hey, Sheila - Thanks for the note... bigger, eh? Hmm. That's a tantalizing idea. I do have some large canvases...

Another friend pointed out that this is very Georgia O'Keeffe-ish - and she is right. Geez. I never even noticed that, though I saw O'Keeffe's abstracts in NY this fall. Interesting.
