This morning; overcast but luminous, the sky, a white uniform surface as if painted by Ad Reinhart. But yesterday, a great blue sky opened up and the sun beamed like a benevolent king. Painted in the early part of the day then to the beach where I found a spot nestled by the dunes to read Matisse. Almost felt guilty for sending the above photo around to friends still enduring the winter snow storms. The i-phone: What a mischievous tool!
