"Late Summer Field" 8x8 oil on panel
A quick sketch today, a little daily painting, but finally I am able to get back to it. It feels so good to be painting again. I wanted something quick and easy for my re-entry. Nothing frustrating or difficult or discouraging. It seems like it has been forever, and I've really allowed "life" to get in the way. It's been a good summer, though. Lots of family this year. But very, very good. I'm hoping to paint several more days over the next week and a half before I start back to the National Academy. Then I will have to find my way as to what i want to post on the blog. Figure painting from life is so much more of a struggle than these little paintings from photographs. . . Oh, well, we'll see. For now, a little taste of Vermont's late summer fields.
