:: Huntingdon ::

What could be more interesting, or in the end, more ecstatic, than in those rare moments when you see another person look at something you’ve made, and realize that they got it exactly, that your heart jumped to their heart with nothing in between.
— Robert Motherwell

The other day I went with one of my friends for a car ride to the Huntingdon area & I took quite a few reference photographs for just in case that I would need them for a winter day like today. Here in Rigaud it was freezing rain this morning, then ice pellets and will probably snow again tonight. Luckily, we only had four hours of blackout and it was during the night, but my husband has put some wood in the fireplaces, put in more gas in the generator, the candles are close to us and it is cozy. We are ready!

  1. A lovely sketch, but what I like best is your description of where and how you did it-just lovely!
