I gave up on the three paintings below (for the moment) and did this one today. I was craving simplicity and so left most of the painting the natural wood. I like it! I’m not sure if it’s done yet (probably not), but am pleased with this new direction.

Yesterday I took the day off and went skiing for the first time in several years. Reminder: GETTING OUT OF THE HOUSE and USING YOUR BODY PHYSICALLY are very good things.
