A Plein-Air Afternoon

Oct 27 blog

It’s quite rare indeed that at the ebbing of October, one can spread a quilt on the ground in the afternoon and enjoy the day with some soft pastels and an easel.  After about three hours, I finished my latest constellation series painting, titled Perseus and Andromeda, and was finding the cold beginning to stiffen my fingers.  But it was hard to ignore just how beautiful it was to be able to enjoy creating art in the fresh air.  Even though my subject matter wasn’t something in my environment, there is something in the crisp air that heightens one’s creativity.
