Upton Lake, Early Morning, October 5th, 2019

October 5th

I woke up early from nerves and painted the start of – truly – the most beautiful day.

Yvonne Szafran, a wonderful and steadfast friend who had travelled over especially from LA for the opening, was staying with us. Consequently, the morning and early afternoon were light and enjoyable. In contrast, the drive to the venue – for me at least, was tense and anxious.

But the opening was great. The space is glorious and I was so touched by the people who came, and by those who decided to acquire a painting. All a bit heady actually!

Today – well I was warned of “postpartum” blues…

But yesterday – the failed selfie says it all: happy, distracted and off-balance.
