The weather for the last few days has been bright and sunny – the typical February Tease. We have been eating lunch out on our deck and reveling in the warmth. I makes me want to get in the garden but we often have frost in April so I have learned to be patient. Maybe I’ll plant some peas next week. It’s such a joy to be outside and we live in such a beautiful place that I yearn to be a good landscape painter. It’s hard to do well, but maybe with this new “daily” painting routine I will paint plein air more often and get better at it. The above was an attempt to catch a wonderful old oak in it’s full glory last fall.
We will be away for a couple of days, so I will post again on Monday.
