If there was one thing I learned this month, it was that you can find a painting anywhere you look. And some days I did. It's amazing what a little creativity and cropping can do for subject matter. Inspiration can be found anywhere.
Today was a beautiful day to end the challenge on. Sunshine and 80 degrees...my kind of day. I drove uptown looking for a place to paint. I only had about an hour so time was of the essence. I have painted this little chapel before but from another angle and much larger. But I liked how it was framed by the trees and sky and the little evergreens in front of it. Just like in a storybook. :)
Here it is in progress...as you can tell from how dark the picture is, I was painting with the sun in my eyes. After all the rain we have had this month, I am not complaining!
I did have some friends to keep me company. They kept flying onto my palette.
Here is the finished painting!
10" x 8" oil on panel - plein air study
NOTE: I will keep the special pricing on these paintings up through October 15th and then the prices will revert to my regular ones, so if there is a painting you are interested in, get it soon
