My mind has been into painting. Photography has taken a definite back seat. I still take the camera when I go our or to just do a spin around the house and studio. But mostly the camera has been picked up to take progress photos of paintings I am working on. Besides the January landscape (and I am mostly interested in landscapes) has been very boring. Not any snow and too early for spring flowers and the sky has been largely gray. Except for that one cold day when the fog froze on the trees.
I love color and I have been working on paintings in vivid colors at the moment because it is so very gray outside. So gray I was hoping for white. But when the white came it too seemed gray. It did not do that New Mexico thing of snowing and then clearing up so you had the stark contrast of blue sky and white land.
So when I took a picture of my black and white cat in a sunspot in the studio I was not satisfied even with the rust colored carpet. I had to play with color.

So if the weather doesn't improve expect more insane play in the dry darkroom this next week.
