Some days are too loaded with "need to do's" to get to the studio for a productive amount of time. Computer deadlines as well as the unopened envelopes stacked beside me tell it's time to sit it out and get it done.
It's easier with a February rain and Maddie Rose in her big dog sleep near the desk.
Then because you are sitting still working, a nice surprise outside the office window makes it all worthwhile. This hawk stayed around long enough to play with my camera.
To carry over a blog idea expressed earlier this week, I have the digital images of my black bear attempts from the studio lined up on a near by table. This habit is like a day of painting without a brush. It's also handy in waiting rooms or long lines.
