and tonight was one. I went to meet up with my plein air group which was an hours drive away at a new location. Couldn't find them anywhere! Turned around, drove, called...no luck. So in my goings back-and-forth I crossed a beautiful spot with a woods on one side and houses on the other. I decided to park it and pull out my gear and begin painting. A while in, a nice couple who lived across the street came to talk and I told them my original plan had gone astray. When I explained to them where I was supposed to me (in my defence) they did kind of laugh and say that the road was fairly confusing as it stopped and started and had a few dead ends. Anyway...my painting was beyond un-postable so I will work on it tomorrow and see if I can redeem myself. In the meantime I am showing you this, which I had fun doing today in my studio. Something a little different. I was experimenting. It reminds me of batik and I am calling it "Farmer's Fields".
