Oil painting on textured canvas (8" x 8")
"Day 13 of The Journey and the first painting I've painted since June, just before Karl went to the hospital the first time.
Of course this painting was not suppose to look like Christmas but there it is.
I'm packing up here in Rockport, Maine and will go to Boothbay Harbor tomorrow, staying for five days. Susan Roux and I are trying to meet up together again there too.
It is GOOD to be alive today."
