I've never really liked the term "Snowbird" but when I left my camp and studio in Rangleley, ME yesterday for Florida thats pretty much what I felt like. I had just fed the chickadees and the nuthatches, turned off the water and the power in the camp and shoveled out. I had a wonderful holiday season in Rangeley with family and friends.... but after 4 feet of snow I was ready to head south.
First stop...MA. I only got to Andover, MA yesterday... greeted warmly by friends...and by another foot of snow!
But I got out this morning, inching south listening to Pete Townshend's "Who I AM"... hoping to get to PA before dark. I made it OK and now it looks like it will be clear flying south on the Atlantic Flyway.
FYI, I've just finished up some new paintings to introduce in Florida!
Here's a few of the new designs and the Florida Show Schedule:
