A beautiful day; clear skies, dry air, a slight breeze, the sunlight clear and brilliant –
Up at 9:00 but Bertha was not up until almost 11:00 – So I fixed for us a light breakfast so we would feel like eating at least by 1:00. She felt groggy after a restless night.
In studio – making a few changes on the Teegarten House picture (now at least the upper section the clouds at lightening seems right) and also the Red Admiral picture – Studying other pictures.
