I've neglected my blog for too long, so here is my first post of 2010 of a plein air painting done at the close of summer. When I painted this, it was a busy Sunday afternoon, with people and their dogs and even a horse soaking up the last bit of warmth the waning days of summer had to offer. It was a great day to be out in the sun. Passersby would stop and chat with me or watch me paint for awhile. Non-painters, who seem to think that artists are exotic creatures, used my artistic endeavor as a teachable moment for their kids. Writing this today has warmed my spirits and helped me forget (almost) these frigid January sub-zero days.
