I spent most of the day yesterday working on those obligations that I've put off for months -- including updating my grandchildren's photo albums. So I didn't quite finish my painting for the day -- so I pluckekd up my nerve to post this plein air attempt from last week.

It was so warm and beautiful -- in contrast to our 40sF temps and constant rain -- so I sat in my car and painting a view of one of the woodlands on our road. I'm not happy with it, and though I can't tell why, I do like the colors and shadows. I"m posting today to give a bit of sunshine to the rainy cold weekend.

The grands come later so it's going to be a busy day -- I still have all of 2009 photos of the grands to catch up with! LOL

Lin - This is lovely...great color and rich shadows. Isn't plein air (even from a car) a lot of fun? I love working that way and can't wait until it is warm enough to go out again. Enjoy!!

Such a pretty scene and great shadows!!

It's better than you think, Lin. I like the shadows a lot and it has good perspective and sense of place.

You have such confidence with your plein air. You make me want to go back and tackle that subject again (okay, when it stops sleeting!)LOL.
