In Oregon we have a long Winter. Sometimes when the Spring is cold, wet and late, it seems like Winter will never end. Here, like in the northern countries of Europe, you don’t stay inside when the weather is nice. Everyone finds a reason to be outside, even if it is to sit in the sun with your eyes closed and soak up the rays. In the Summer it is hard to imagine the cold dark grey of December. Sitting with the warmth beating down on your face, the possibility of the frigid rain and wind seems incredibly remote. This painting reminds me of that moment when we are safe in the embrace of the sun, and the long cold season is so far away that that it can hardly be imagined.
