Artful Living

garden path

My first May painting a day.  A spring garden path meandering down a hill to an open field.  I could pick this apart and point out all the reasons to start a new painting but alas, part of my nudge is in fact to paint each day and allow the looseness of this exercise allow me to be less critical and just do the work.

I had such a wonderful afternoon yesterday at the MET, visiting the Impressionism, Fashion and Modernity exhibit. The one thing that amazed me most was the looseness the artists achieved by painting outside.  I am off to work now for a client today but did want to share this work with you on this glorious day.
