Day 15: this morning I took Cutter, my dog and faithful studio assistant for a long walk. The morning air was crisp, the sun shone brightly with not a cloud in the sky. It was a beautiful, Western New York Spring day. I usually walk in silence but today I had my EarPods in, listening to a podcast. I was trying to do a little multitasking, which I think kind of defeats the purpose of a walk. Other than good exercise, walks tend to clear my head. Today I was cheating myself of that experience... that was until I noticed the light on one of my neighbors barns. The farm stands on top of a large hill and has a million dollar view, but today, the million dollar view was reversed. The red barn glowed in the morning sun on top of the sleepy sepia ￼and umber foliage that surround it￼. I stopped and removed the ear pods and tried to memorize the colors that were on display before me.
