Mountains and Flowers - Eric Michaels
This is an exercise from Eric Michaels, writer of the emagazine "En Plein Air"... I wanted to begin painting a few more mountain scenes and this was the perfect exercise to practice!
Our long walk yesterday in the bright sunshine was splendid! Birds were flitting, the air was cool in the shadows, and there was just enough warmth to the day to give us the boost we needed to be outdoors. I'm especially glad we took advantage of the day since rain will be back this afternoon and snow is in the forecast later in the week.
Off to another busy workweek. I drop off three of my paintings for a yearlong exhibit at our community college system office where they'll be viewed by all sorts of officials as well as the general public. The office returns the two that have been on display since last year.
Hope your day is sunny and bright!
