Today during Open Studios at Sabine Street I painted this pullet. I also kept messing around with the former hurricane paintings. I decided I’d paint some green over them to symbolize new stuff growing after the rain, but then that turned into yellow, my ultimate happy color. I figured it could be sunshine after the rain. Or maybe all of our efforts to overcome the trauma of the storm and rebuild our lives and our city in this past year. I like to think of how far most of us have come!
Also, I’m happy to report that this evening I sat down and finally resumed writing my Galveston ghost story, which I’d neglected since May. I promise I will do a better job of staying on top of it from now on!
