Recent summers have been spent working "en plein aire," but for a variety of reasons it just hasn't been possible this summer. I've been mostly working in the studio. In the field an artist tends to be more responsive and immediate, and the in studio more thoughtful and reflective. As artists we need a need a little of each if we are to grow in both spirit and technique. The studio time has been valuable, but I look forward to getting out in the field again next week! This painting was started back in May, and I'm finally satisfied with it. Have a great weekend!
