12x16 Oil on canvas
I call this one 'Courage' because I decided to paint 'plein air' by myself at the Bonnet House in Florida. I've gone with groups in the past - strength in numbers. Painting outside is a challenge and a joy. I love the total focus required. It is much more difficult to isolate your subject matter. The light changes, there are bugs and heat and people looking over your shoulder. This captures my morning. I had a blast!
