Burning Bush :: Fusain ailé

Perhaps we delight in evening because we have had the day.
— The Art Spirit by Robert Henri.

Today is the day that we switched our clocks backwards by one hour… and this feels very good indeed. To me these are the normal hours that we should be living by in our north easterly region in North America. This feels normal as opposed to the daily savings time DST. Here is a Winged Spindle or commonly known as Burning Bush that I painted on my lot…

Aujourd’hui le temps a reculé d’une heure et ça fait du bien! Je trouve que ce temps, ce temps normal, par rapport à l’heure avancée de l’est que nous venons de quitter, est l’heure où je me sens bien, non précipitée ou bousculée… le temps coule plus facilement… plus facilement qu’à l’heure avancée. Voici ma version de l’arbuste fusain ailé que j’ai peint de notre terrain…

Paper: Larolan Sketchbook #10
Colours: Alizarin Crimson, Mayan Violet, Q. Burnt Orange, Burnt Sienna, Serpentine Genuine, Raw Sienna and French Ultramarine (such a cacophony of colours)
Pen: Pilot Penmanship Flexi Grip EF
Ink: Noodlers Lexington Grey

      Thank you Micheline — and I hope that it is only the flu that you have — many of my students have very sore throats -)
