Sunday Art Adventure...

It was a day out to explore and to do some painting.
Denise and I visited 
There was so much to see and so much to offer. 
The owner Chris welcomed us and had answers to any questions about the many varieties of
 Lavender she has available at her farm. 

 Our summer day was a bit cool and cloudy....
 I got a start on a painting, however it needs some work.
I need to work on being spontaneous yet make marks with purpose.
It seemed dull and overworked when I got it home.
I won't give up.....
I like the composition
I love the memories made today!

 On the way home it began to clear up and sunshine!

"The real voyage of discovery
consists not in seeking new landscapes
but having new eyes."

Saturday Art Day

I Enjoyed some art time in the gardens of Deepwood Estate this afternoon,
after attending the SAA Studio Sale at 
Bush Barn Art Center.

 I tried out a new idea for a portable pastel palette made out 
of a vintage Samsonite suitcase. It was an adventure to see if 
it would work. I had a successful first trip out with it. 
I do still prefer standing at my easel with my full box of pastels
however this gives me another option for plein air painting this summer!

I was able to get an under painting done, 
and got started with my pastels.

 As always, it is a joy to spend the time with friends....
 Leslie, Nancy, Deanna, & Denise

Yes, it is true!
I am very touched by the beauty
