Time Off Expires

Reminder: Opening reception today at Melrose Bay Gallery, 4-9pm. I'm one of the guests artists.

Four days away from the studio. Tugging at me with each passing, the door beckoned. I ventured in to catch up on books, cleaning and reading without picking up a brush. Torture!

Lots of yard work accomplished (everything's been killed by frost), weeded veggie garden and went canoeing on the Oklahawa River from Eureka Outpost. By Florida standards, it's been an incredibly cold winter with 20 or so days below freezing.

This hawk let us get right underneath it's perch on a overhanging branch.

All the way upstream, only baby gators were out sunning. Isn't it adorable?

Not until returning late in the afternoon did we finally spot a seven footer. We're as close as we dared.
