"The shortest day has passed, and whatever nastiness of weather we may look forward to in January and February,- Vita Sackville-West
at least we notice that the days are getting longer. Minute by minute they lengthen out. It takes some weeks before
we become aware of the change. It is imperceptible even as the growth of a child, as you watch it day by day,
until the moment comes when with a start of delighted surprise we realize that we can stay out of doors in a
twilight lasting for another quarter of a precious hour."
The above is Painting #2 for 2010. It's a complete rip-off of Canadian artist William Goodridge Roberts (more about him later). I needed some practice.
Does anyone know who I'm quoting in my title (without Googling)? She's one of my favourite writers and I was recently disappointed by a movie adaptation of one of her classic stories.
