|"New vines" by Hilary J. England|
8" x 16" oil on canvas
It's been a pretty productive week, although I have been feeling a bit tired since I've been working out extra hard, and once you hit middle age, well, recovery just isn't what it used to be. But, extra sleep helps.
I have been working around town, and my particular focus is all the interesting little mundane things that people seem to miss in their mad rush of living life. Spring is such a lovely time to notice these little things, like the blooming of new flowers, and the renewal of everything. I notice these new vines shooting off an old tree, creeping up onto the lattice of an old basement, and it was very eye-catching to me. Yes, the beauty of these things always catches my eye, and I think of the grand design and what an artist God is. Truly incredible to me.
