I'm Posting This Orchid Painting...

...because I can't think of anything else to blog about right now. The winter doldrums are setting in, and it's all I can do to stay awake after 7 pm.

Anyway, this is part of a new series I'm doing that includes fruits and vegetables and other objects against a colored background. I've been meaning to post these new paintings on my website and I will, I will. I just don't feel like it right now. I mean, did Matisse have to worry about websites and blogging? For that matter, do grizzly bears have to worry about such things? Because I feel like I have a lot more in common with a hibernating grizzly bear right now than a motivated, productive artist (as the pile of walnut shells on my desk can attest to).

For that matter, aren't you all hibernating too? Is anyone really reading this? If I fall asleep at my desk, will anyone hear the sound of walnut shells being scattered all over the floor?

Good night.
