View from my back door, painted ‘live’. Oil on Arches Oil Paper.
I’m kind of a housebody (take after my grandmother Ceci), so I don’t often paint ‘plein air’. While my art buddies were out painting in the hot summer sun, I decided to paint what I see out of my back door window daily.
I’m thinking that lovely blue sky is too cheerful for the mood of the painting. What do you think??
Here’s another of my paintings to be featured at the Writers Center exhibit, opening in late June. A ‘plein air’ painting (done in the great outdoors) painted along S Street, NW, DC, in a workshop offered by Carol Rubin, another wonderful artist.
Beautiful Memorial Day weekend, leisurely breakfast at the kitchen table, spotting a bird flitting away from the weeping cherry next door. Just had to do a quick celebratory iPad painting of the tree — now decked out in its full greens, beautifully offset by the juicy dark shadows under the flowing branches. Have a good, peaceful and remembering weekend.
