This weeks work has yielding some interesting paintings. The direction is definitely spring, what with Scandinavia finally receiving some sunshine, after the months of darkness. The palette changes with the seasons, and now things are running greens and yellows and plants. That is not to say that it's been SUNNY here...quite the contrar.....grey, wet and cold, but the sunsets are extending with an hour a week and that means that sunrise is about 07:30 and sunset is about 6:00 p.m.....a more natural cycle for a human. If you've never been far north (Alaska or thereabouts) you don't know how the shifts in season effect your mood. Lack of sunshine in the winter months, and overabundance of sunshine in the summer (midnight sun) makes for an extremely crazy personalty. Anyway, I will be attaching some of the newest creations as soon as I can find my digital camera....my husband needed it this week to take pictures of our car for the insurance company......Have a great week everyone.
