One of my favorite things to do is to go outdoors and paint on location. PleinAir painting! What I love about it is when I do go out and paint; I go into a 'zone' where the world melts away, time, people, food, drink disappear...I am alone with my painting and nature. Some people would call this meditation...whatever it is - I Enjoy it and am so Grateful that I can have these precious moments...I feel blessed! Here is a painting I did in Ashland Oregon. It was cold and I had only an hour to paint when it started to rain. This is a 9" x 12" painting and I would be happy to send it to you, should you want to have it...email me and I'll give you the details.
