It was fun. It was work. It was good to know that in my dotage I can still climb ladders and swing that brush all day.
I am trading in mural walls for tiny gouache paintings for a while. While the humidity spreads its soggy wings over my house and garden for the summer, staying inside and painting would appear the more comfortable occupation....vs. pulling weeds and chasing the dog.
Besides, someone just told me that there were three copperhead snakes found on our block last week.
