Seems like I have been gone forever! Sorry about that..I just needed to square away the car issue. It really was obsessing me. After tons of deliberation I am buying a brand new (never thought I would do this) Honda Fit. It fits all my painting stuff and gets amazing gas mileage, which as a plein air painter I need. Back to the SUV canyon I guess, but money in the bank. Best of all I ordered a violet one!! My favorite color.
Now as for art it feels great to be back focusing on my work. Here is my newest studio piece in its second layer of pastel. I am striving to get that airy feel...light coming through fog. More tomorrow!
