January light

 Paradise - SOLD
5" x 7" oil on stretched canvas
Available through Etsy

Maybe its that long dark month of January, full of snow and cold temperatures here, that's put me in the wrong frame of mind. Perhaps its dealing with lawyers and government and banks to make headway in executing my mother's estate that finds me sighing more than usually.

January 14, 2015  Brrrr

Whatever it is, it has to stop!  My frame of mind has a distinct impact on creativity.  When I am unhappy or distracted, creativity slows down or disappears.  Sleep disappears along with it unfortunately. Without a lamp to mimic sunshine, I chose to create my own light in this little painting of a bird of paradise flower.  It would be lovely to see these growing in a garden instead of as cut in arrangements in a florist's shop.

I'll also be adding to the winter light with a review of an Ottlite Easel Lamp and the chance of winning one for yourself.  I love the lamp already and if you're in a light deprived part of the world, you'll love it too I know.
