Today is my second day off and it feels great to get two in a row. I spent the first day rattling about the house in my bathrobe, organizing things here and there, reading, soaking in the tub, and writing. Today I finally got properly dressed in order to clear the walkways and driveway of the snow we received recently (just in time too, as a freezing rain began to fall as I was finishing up the pathway to the oil fill).
On my way back into the house, I grabbed yesterday's mail from the mailbox, which gets me back around to the point of today's post. I am always amazed to discover life's synchronicity. Just yesterday I mentioned plein air painting in a rather derogatory fashion. "I am not one to subject myself to that practice, this being New Hampshire where there's either ticks, black flies, and/or mosquitoes, or else it's too cold. Besides, collage lends itself better to solitary work with everything conveniently close at hand" is what I said. And now look what I found:
I think they got me on their distribution list in error. Are there any plein air collage artists?
