Day 23 ... "no clear path"

I finally got outside to paint today! I spent the better part of the day working on another large piece and then headed out about 5:00 to paint in a nearby field.  The clouds and sky were beautiful while I was driving and I wanted a clear opening to see them.  We have such a huge canopy of large trees in Charlotte that seeing the sky (unless you look straight up) can sometimes be impossible.

The trees and grasses are already shifting to a fall color palette.  I noticed a lot more gold and orange in the landscape.  The grasses in the field have gotten very tall and my pathway through it was all but invisible.  It was a golden afternoon to spend outside with my paint buddy.  Tomorrow I head back to the coast for a few days so I'm looking forward to painting there.  :)

Here is a sweet shot of my pup, Tybee, patiently waiting for me to pack up.  She was ready for dinner!

I am donating 50% of the sale of every 30-in-30 painting this month to help the flood victims of Hurricane Harvey.  The charities I am supporting are the Houston Food Bank and the Houston Humane Society.   I hope if you fall in love with one of my paintings this month, you will take the opportunity to purchase one and help me help those that have lost so much.
