I went from the really cold to the very lovely this week. I had 3 days in Miami and 3 days in Naples, Florida visiting my Mom. Now I'm back to the cold. It was a nice getaway and I am happy I was able to stick to the discipline of the painting sketchbook. I had watercolors with me and just 2 tubes of gouache so the quality of the paintings are a little different. The hardest part is deciding what to paint each day. It feels very important but I'm working on not being too precious about it..
