The title of this painting describes my feelings about this being my 29th painting of the month! I went to the garden store today instead of the grocery store to pick up my subject matter. I've been avoiding going there because I thought that when I walk in, I will have an overwhelming sense to want winter to be over. Surprisingly enough, I didn't feel that way at all. Today was such a beautiful sunny winter day, cold yes, (but I was prepared for that), and I had a skip in my step knowing that I will have this weekend free!!! To make the day even better, I bought this plant and a really nice pot and it was practically free. Apparently I had collected a lot of points and today was my lucky day! I even signed up for some Saturday classes on various garden related topics. Tomorrow will be my last painting for the challenge, and then I will be free! Well not really, but I will then have the freedom to take more than a day to finish a painting.
