Kicking the Dust Off 8x6 oil

I have been inside for so long. Going back outside yesterday and just dealing with lugging my stuff and adjusting my eyes just made me wonder. I did two small paintings to which I had to ask myself what drew me to paint this scene and what inspired me. I have no right to be bored with landscape. I just don't think I know what I am looking for... again. I love the lesure of the studio. The thought process of leaving it, thinking all the while and returning with fresh ideas and vision. Have I lost all spontanity? Am I old and grumpy? Hummmm , need to try it again. I ask the question...What do I want from this that is new and interesting? A road, some trees, grass, bushes, and a bit of sky...what can I do to make this talk?

This is wonderful .... but all of your work is great! I REALLY like your Karin Jurck painting.... Fabulous!!!

It doesn't matter where you paint or what you paint... as long as you find joy in it.

As I said, I like painting outdoors because I like BEING outdoors. Thanks for your comment by the way!!

Good painting. I have had the same questions lately with almost everything I work on.

Dori, I think there are a lot of interesting things going on in this painting. I especially love the bits of blue alongside the roadway. That and your bold brushstrokes add a lot to this piece.
