This blog is dedicated to the memory of my life partner of nearly thirty years, Dr. Howard G. Hanson-- artist, writer, musician, and teacher-- who with me celebrated a belief that we can achieve whatever we allow ourselves to imagine. This blog reflects the whole person that our lives together enabled.

Another Early Morning Light

"Another Early Morning Light"   16" x 20"   Oil on Canvas
SOLD
Last week as I was pouring my first cup of coffee, I looked out my kitchen window and saw this.  Rain clouds were clearing out as the sun was coming up and the resulting light in my winter woods was breath-taking.  Still in my PJs and postponing that cup of coffee, I grabbed my camera, went out on my deck and began shooting.

Even though I'm beginning to yearn for the greens of springtime, I'm still discovering subtle purples, pinks and oranges in the winter grays that I suspect I'm going to miss when the spring greens actually arrive.  But these fleeting moments remind me of the importance of soaking it all in as it happens.
