I caught a cold or some such yesterday and, under its influence, I didn’t write my planned-for post. Today, I am still under the weather but have roused myself to write a few lines.
March is my least-favorite month. The first warm days induce Spring fever. Compelled outside by the bright sunshine only to discover that it’s brutally cold. What a trick. I remember taking a snow shovel to the playground during a grade-school March. Snow and cold wouldn’t stop our play.
I was working on Lunch Alone, the painting on the easel, when I ran out of steam. Luckily, I had finished the painting in the background, Girl in the Lavender Dress, in the morning before I felt the effects of the cold. Girl in the Lavender Dress is part of the Playhouse Square series even though the design is from a mash-up of several photos, some unrelated to Playhouse Square.
