Canyon View 8" x 10" oil
This was a very hot day a few Saturdays ago. Painted under a tree and it wasn't so bad. I was having trouble with this painting and thought I would not post this ...and then decided it was important that I do. Good, bad or whatever it is where I am on this creative journey. The day and just being out in nature was worth the trip. That is the blessing of plein air painting. The hope, of course, is that a painting will emerge from all that there is to see and that it will tell me something about how I see and how far I have come. The truth is sometimes I side step and even step back.
