order from chaos

pastel with watercolor underpainting
Now that my show and residency are finished, my brain and time has been freed up considerably. This just in time for plein air painting's most gorgeous weather of the year. Yay!
Sometimes I think my better plein air pieces come when the subject is total chaos. That means I have to select and create a kind of order. With the thick woods, filled with underbrush and a flowered forest floor the opportunities are limitless. I simply paint color shapes.
PS Thank you everyone for making the show such a great success. To all the folks that put their names on a list for the next workshop- I will get back to you soon! In the meantime- keep painting!!!
