When I lived in a house in the woods, the most beautiful sound
I would hear was the flute-like song of the wood thrush.

Henry David Thoreau wrote, "The thrush alone declares the immortal wealth and vigor that is in the forest. Here is a bird in whose strain the story is told... Whenever a man hears it he is young, and Nature is in her spring; whenever he hears it, it is a new world and a free country,
and the gates of heaven are not shut against him."

I was sort of glad to see the topic Simple because I didn't have much time to finish a painting this week, so I thought I would do something uncomplicated, rather than get carried away with
little details and objects - sitting painting away for 20 hours or more like I usually do.
I decided to do a simple small picture of a lizard because I only had Sunday to work on it. (We are leaving for Nevada tomorrow and won't be home until Friday.) Well it's not one of my better efforts but at least I got it finished.
