With my daughter back to school, I was going to attempt some plein air. But the snow is mushy, so I am going to give it a couple more days. This is part of my backyard fence, with receding snow and the mud that is now our backyard.
Today we were out hiking in the snow with friends and a pack of dogs. No time to stop to paint, so I plundered my daughters toys for today’s subject.
Got off schedule today – worked on a different project this morning with a friend, then my daughter had a playdate. Again, I was compelled to paint bright happy colors, and kept it in a primary palette.
It’s been a cold, grey and white winter so far. The snow is sticking around, which is kinda cool, but I yearn for COLOR. So, here ya go. Clementines. I was trying to channel some Duane Keiser. It’s like sunshine in a postcard.
