Winter Day

While spring is upon us, I hadn't yet posted this piece from a short while ago.  I'm not sure who started the saying "Springtime in the Rockies."  But, it doesn't refer to flowers, blossoms, buds and warm nights.  Yesterday was a very windy 21 degrees!  Colorado Springs is at 6,000 feet and the changing weather is always a topic of conversation.

My posts are a bit less frequent than normal.  Recuperating from partial knee replacement is almost a full time job.  Three times each day I do 20 - 30 minutes of physical therapy.  Several hours each day I sit in a CPM machine, which moves your leg, so that even when you're doing "nothing" your leg is in motion.  Three times each week I go to the Physical Therapist, who swears he wasn't a Chinese Torture agent in his last life, but I'm not sure!  And, everything that I do is an effort and takes a long time.  I'm just grateful that I live in this century and that in a few more weeks I'll be even better!

Oh my goodness ... speedy recovery.

Love your painting. It really captures the cold.

Thinking of you, Pam. Hang in there. You'll be better than new very soon. Your painting is so lovely. Our temps today are in the 40's in Central Texas. Yet it was in the 90's in January. :-)

I'm beginning to think that this winter will never end but better weather is just ahead! You'll soon be up and about enjoying it! Take care!

Love the shadows in the snow; perfection. Hope you'll be good as new sooner rather than later.

Nancy, thank you. You'd think that living in colorado that I'd paint lost s of snow scenes, but no...and I really liked painting this. Next winter I hope to do more.

Debbi, Thanks. I think that the whole country is having an unusual winter weather wise.

thank you Lori. I know that in two weeks I'll be much better!

Sherry, thank you. The shadows were what drew me to this spot.
