I've been a busy beaver, painting, writing, thinking. Might as well work, what with the wind, the cold and the snow squalls, I can't really go out. And by "can't" I mean "won't". This is my latest piece, I call it Up All Night. I'm quite pleased with it. I haven't painted my signature crows for a while, so it was nice they decided to come back to me.
This painting makes me think of Misty and I. It's been almost 5 years to the day that we both made the decision that a love like ours deserved a third chance. Good thing we did, huh? As it turns out, we're pretty much exactly the same as we were as teenagers. Two peas in a pod. And our favourite thing is still staying up really late and chatting and drinking coffee (or wine, or beer) and just enjoying the wee hours of the morning. Turns out Baby likes it too, he tends to wake up around 11:30 pm every night and absolutely loves when we stay up with him. He knows it likely means more food, and it definitely means more play time!
As I look at this piece, it makes me realize how lucky I am, to have that one person in the world that I can be with all day and still want to be up all night with. It's a rare and wonderful thing.
