With all that's been happening in my hometown these days, I just haven't felt like painting.  Sometimes our emotional state affects our ability to concentrate on our painting life.  But finally I forced myself into the studio.  I combed through my photos and found a pic I took in Mystic Seaport, Connecticut years ago.  I returned to an old theme: dockside subject matter.  I also love painting reflections in water and boats. Finding quiet in this kind of setting soothes my anxieties. 

I'm thinking that with Christmas coming, maybe I ought to try a snow scene.  A return to thinking about painting leads to actual painting.
