|inside, the fire delightful|
Last night, I was beginning a group of small paintings, had just loaded my brush with a gob of cadmium red and 'poof'...we lost power! The radiator in my studio died, blackness ensued while the wind ferociously howled outside. I called to Dave who came up the stairs with a flashlight enabling me to clean off my brush. The rest of the evening was spent cozying up to the wood stove, knitting by candlelight (Dave playing solitaire on his ipad). Thank goodness for wood stoves, the house was getting chillier by the minute. Luckily, about 5 hours later we regained power. Times like this make me realize how much of a treasure it is to enjoy a warm house and electricity; though sitting by the fire together was also a sort of treasure.
