I’ve written a lot about the view from my bedroom window. Yesterday evening at dusk I rolled into my room to grab something but I was stopped in my tracks by a beautiful sight.
The sky was huge with the fading sun spreading across the building. I was lost for words, but my tics certainly weren’t.
“Oh remarkable sky glowing with the dreams of a million trees.”
“Sky, are you an abstract impressionist or a post modern bucket?”
“Sky, I’m going to paint you naked.”
I had my iPad on my lap so I started to paint (I kept my clothes on though).
I was on the phone to Leftwing Idiot while I was drawing and so not consciously concentrating on what I was making.
By the end of the call the drawing was done and dusk had given way to darkness. I was so pleased that I’d come into my room at just the right moment to catch this incredible sight, and that I had my iPad on my lap at the time. I quite literally got to see an old view in a new light.
