For the month of January 2014, more than 253 other artists and I posted a painting a day for 30 days.

This is Day 5: The children always yearned to go up in the attic. In winter, is is very, very cold up there. In summer, it is way too hot to even stand at the top of the attic stairway. On the fifth day of their vacation, Mason and Adalynn were lucky.  Temperatures were mild and they could finally go up the narrow stairs.

Maybe they were a bit disappointed to only find dusty boxes and old furniture. But they pretended to look for treasure for awhile.They could look out the tiny window and see treetops. This was Florida, so they observed palm trees, cypress trees, oaks, and magnolias. Gramma explained that when she was their age, she lived in a different place. In her attic back then, she could see far above the trees and that even included distant mountains. She showed them pictures of trees that turned pretty colors before winter set in. They were surprised. Mason declared  that someday he would be big enough to climb to the top of a tree. Adalynn said,"ME TOO!!!"
