Sun is out, the river is high ; back to the studio with Emily

Last week end was a wash, literally. It rained for what seemed like forty days & forty nights. In fact, it was more like three days & three nights, but that was enough. There were certainly lots of jokes & references to Noah's ark brandished about. We experienced some serious leaks in our domicile but thankfully our ceiling did not completely fall down as I had feared. The Naponset River, on who's banks we live, crested just below the flood line. It had not reached that hight since 1955, when a huricane hit the area.

The sun has come out. Warmer weather has arrived. Bulbs are popping up. And everything is looking wonderful.

As a result of the rain I have not been to the studio for awhile. I have done very little painting this month.

Emily is on school break while her siblings are still in school & her mom is working, so she came over to spend some time with me. After checking out the river we headed off to the studio. She painted a beautiful painting. Unfortunately we forgot to take a photo of the finished product. And she gave me some good tips on what I was working on. We enjoyed our time together & the chance to be back in the studio.
