It has been two months since I last went out at night to paint with light. A “lighter’s block” I called it. Maybe it was fear of not ever feeling the same buzz as in the beginning or that I was failing in repetition. Silly fear, because there is never a buzz or a photo alike. I must never forget how therapeutic it is to light-paint in nature. This spring started cold and dry like the winter preceding it so it took awhile before the beautiful Daffs of Clingendael in The Hague blossomed. The park is covered in thousands of them mostly on the sides of water canals running through it.
