6" x 6"
I went back to the same spot h oping for some sun this morning. It was in and out the entire time but did get some glimpses of sunlight so tried to go for that option! I am short on boards so I tried one I had that I was never a fan of because the surface is so smooth and shiny. I sanded it down and still I had very little control especially with the palette knife. A bit messy but you get the idea. Headed to Rockland Maine tomorrow to do a four day workshop with Lori Putnam loriputnam.com . I'm really looking forward to it. I'll be painting everyday don't know if I'll get the 6x6's done but I'll have something to show each day!

Today was the hardest day to date to get out and paint. It was a day full of errands, getting paintings in the mail that are going to new homes an playing catch up after being in VT for the week. It was supposed to be a sunny day and turned out being overcast all day. I could see the line of clouds and blue sky just north of us so as sunset time was nearing I headed out and went North just a bit hoping to find some sun. I had painted this orchard in the winter and thought it was definitely worth a drive by. So glad I did. The sun was out when I arrived but quickly disappeared. I really loved painting here and hoping to go back tomorrow. If I wasn't partaking in the challenge I wouldn't have gone outside to paint and I would've missed this opportunity.

After spending over 20 years photographing professionally I thought it was time to explore something new and experience my world with paint and a brush.
