It's good to be out painting in the fresh air and warm sun.
Light makes all the difference, of course.
Stopping on a country road on the way to Perugia, the largest town in the area. Set up to paint.
Soon the trees will be filled with new leaves. They are still bare, but the green is coming on.
|Italian farmhouses have recently become a favorite theme of mine.|
Sticking closer to home, painting in the front yard with all the luxuries at hand. I'm bundled up, the air is still very cool. It's always nice when the sun is out and the wind has died down.
The views from the garden could keep me busy painting for years.
|After lunch session.|
This was a very relaxed, small painting. Happy, loose and colorful.
The paintings on this particular afternoon are almost like 'warm-ups'. Just to get the brush and the color moving.
The weather has been a challenge for me. Not being able to get into a routine of work in March.
Now, we have had a break and I'm happy to be out more.
When all else fails, weather wise, I can work in my studio.
Working on ideas in the studio keeps me in the process for future, larger paintings.
|Important to keep working.|
April is here, and hopefully there will be lots of nice days to work.
