Purple Shoelaces

“It’s tempting to sit and wait for life to come to you, but it can’t.  It’s too busy.  Life is out there.  You have to go for it.”
Harry Beckwith

Another painting from the archives.  I have noticed that when I paint larger, I don’t have time to do as many.  *sigh*

I have been battling a cold since Sunday.  I even declined an opportunity to go fly last night, so I must be sick.  **gasp!**  I somehow make it through my work days, but I’m exhausted!   Anybody have any good cold remedies?  I’m scheduled to fly on Monday and Tuesday, and I’d like to be cured by then.  :D
