I have had a few nice days outside painting. There is this wonderful creek not far from my home which was shown to me on a walk with my friend Judy. I did a pastel sometime back of a tree not far from this one. In that one I worked from a photo. Today I got to go back and work in plein air. It is wonderful to be outside with just the sounds of critters (which can freak me out). I am fortunate to have Kim VanDerHoek along to paint too. We can kinda watch out for each other, which I so appreciate...thanks Kim.
