I had a serious case of "fear of flying" when it was time to do this painting.  Occasionally this happens to me and a lot of artists I know.  Those negative thoughts that just want to continually contaminate your thoughts were on the attack.  Normally I live in a state of denial of that kind of thing.  Someone doesn't like me?  No way, why would someone not like a nice person like me?  I don't ski as well as someone?  Well, I enjoy it twice as much!  I look like an Amazon?  Well I always have a good view!  Anyway, I invested a lot of energy into procrastination  before I finally did this one, but I got a bigger sense of relief from it than I will when I finally do my taxes.  I love the joyous looks on their faces, and although the palette is a bit unusual with lots of pinks, blues and purples, I still think it conveys warmth on a chilly day.

Well done! Yes, they look like they are having a good time and so should you painting it. Oh......, procrastination and taxes used in the same write up. Thanks for the reminder. Love the painting.
