6:08 PM: still unable to paint due to this annoying cold, i continued my updates to the site today. i added 3 collages, all of which were made during our 2 month stay in houston for medical treatment in 2012, and 9 plein air. the plein air had all been photographed the day of with my iphone, but needed to be properly lit and photographed with my nikon. it wsa a fun day, in spite of the fact that my awareness was continually traveling to the plein air i could have been painting in the unusual 60 degree temperatures. on the other hand, i can never find the time to do what i did today. so good on me!
