"Fall Foliage", oil, 5" x 7"
I've been thinking of resuming blogging for a few weeks now but have been putting it off because I didn't know what to say. The last time I posted on my blog was May 29, when my husband was in the hospital. He passed away in early July.
We were together for almost 40 years, so adjusting to life without him has been sad, uncomfortable, lonely. I'm so grateful to the friends and family who have helped me get through this difficult time.
Recently I started painting again, going out with my friend Ann for a few plein air excursions and meeting up with the portrait group I've been going to for quite a few years. Keeping busy, putting one foot in front of the other, you get used to your "new normal". Time does heal, slowly, and getting out on a warm autumn day in the woods is restorative.
