My perfect inspiration from my favorite artist, Neil Myers
When I put this post together yesterday, New York was still in the midst of one of the coldest weather patterns I can remember here. But overnight life returned to winter normal and I very happily went out in less than my arctic wear. I had on "just" a winter coat and gloves -- no hat and no boots. I did a little closet decluttering and started my day with a quick trip to the Salvation Army. I'm optimistic that I will reclaim large portions of my storage closet in 2018!
One of my major inspirations during the polar freeze was the painting shown above. It's a watercolor done by one of my favorite artists, Neil Myers. His work includes many paintings of the American Southwest, but I was especially fortunate to acquire this beautiful watercolor of Provence. It hangs over my computer and while I'm typing I'm also enjoying the view of the lavender fields. It's not quite being in Provence, but it's a wonderful inspiration on a cold, cold day, or any day! Also a big thanks to my friends at GK Framing in Lower Manhattan who worked magic framing this painting.

Denise, I will be in touch to get your address and send the video to you. Congratulations!
Now I'm off for another walk while it's sunny and (relatively) warm. As ever, thanks for visiting and take good care.
