Happy New Year!!!

Today, finally the sun came out.. and I could take a good picture of the painting, which I had completed some time ago.. I had taken a few photographs in good light previously too, but they had all come out slightly shaken.

This time, there was not much bright sunlight this Summer, in Michigan. I had been sketching other places in gloomy settings while this painting remained a work-in-progress for quite some time. I finally got a good sunny day and went to the library for finishing the painting. What was surprising was that, for the entire one hour that I sat there finishing the last session of the painting, there was beautiful bright sunlight. Then I left the painting on the car passenger seat and went to the library to pick up some holds. By the time I checked them out and came out, the weather had turned gloomy and we had our first Winter snow flurries! I was amazed! It was such a beauty! Now, some beautiful things, can NOT be captured by camera or sketch! It has to be felt and enjoyed!
