The light makes me want to eat raw vegetables and paint in the evenings and open the windows and move my office outside - a few cushions, a blanket, the teapot and whatever I am working on, plus sunscreen. It also makes me want to go down to the seashore first thing in the morning or when I get home from work. Sometimes I take my beautiful surroundings for granted. These days I stop to take in the view from my house every now and again when I am pottering around. I am working on a series of paintings that document the changing light across the bay as seen from my kitchen window.
These are the times I wish I either had a better camera or could finally make an effort to figure out how to use mine properly (the Luddite in me resists), but the photos still captured it.
