In My Opinion… Pat Grabill… April 22, 2021

Welcome to Spring!  What?  Not yet?  We had how many inches of snow in mid April? I had to cover HOW many peony plants so they could bloom when it warmed again?  And this was the view from our front porch? We DO live in the Midwest, where weather is likely to change in a moment and then change again shortly after.  I am hoping

Hospital Collaboration IUHealth/Methodist hospitals have invited various arts organizations to participate in a community outreach effort to benefit their long-term patients.

I have to say, though, that

T.S.Eliot, in his poem, "The Wasteland," says that April is the cruelest month.  I say, NO WAY, T.S.  February is the cruelest month, and February, 2021, proves it in terms of the weather.  The good thing about February, though, is that it's also the shortest month.  Soon it will be onto March and some early spring days, and we may even be warm again.  Someday.

Happy New Year!!!!  I posted a Bitmoji instead of a painting this time because it's winter, and I don't paint "winter" (because I really don't like winter), and I figured it was too early for a beach painting.  But maybe not.  Maybe a beach painting next month. Speaking of painting--I would love to see what you--fellow painters--have been working on during this long, long, long
