A new day

Falling Leaves, acrylic on canvas (c) Colette Copeland, available in my Etsy shop

When the going gets tough, I turn to my easel and paint. I've learned not to let the elements pull me down, hard as it can be. There seems to be a dark cloud hovering over the world so I light my candles.

I found this box of candles at Putti; they burn cleanly, no dripping, because it turns out they have tiny holes running through them. Gallic ingenuity.

May your day be filled with light.
