You know sometimes you see people painting certain subjects and you wonder if they just gloriously "happen" or if there are struggles and wipe-outs along the way? Let me tell you about this morning: Frustration. Mess. Time-wasting. Last week I painted a blah frog that just wasn't good enought to post. This morning I spent an hour trying to get another frog down. In the end I wiped it off. Wish I had abandoned it before I'd invested all that time but I just kept thinking I could make a go of it. Nope. It felt better when I cleaned it off and began fresh. ~A clean slate. ~
So tomorrow through Friday I will be out of the studio plein air painting. Tomorrow is my normally scheduled class with Catherine Gibbon and Wednesday-Friday I am at a 3-day plein air workshop with Laurie Wonfor Nolan. The weather looks great + I'm all inspired from my gallery trips...can't wait to dig in!
